try booting with..
"acpi=off"
"noapic"
"acpi=off noapic"

For me, the third one gets it working again on two boxes.
Without that, packets are sent, but nothing is ever recieved.

For me, the third option results in a kernel panic very early during boot
:( I'm trying to get more info out of it.

Other options untested yet.

Interesting, can you post that panic ?

Okay, this indeed works for me too.

Interesting is this:

MPS 1.4 disabled in BIOS (no irq rerouting table in memory), acpi enabled in
kernel, apic on: 3Com module tries to claim IRQ 0, which is of course
incorrect.

the IRQ rerouting causes trouble for my SCSI card too, I guess we're still a
long way from usable ACPI and APIC :( If I can be of any help to test things,
please let me know.

Located, caused by a magically jumped back Processor setting (P4 code doesn't
work on P2)
