Intel 82558 not working

This message follow a previous post (2000/11/09)

I try something else with the same configuration.

I add more time to the driver (sleep) to make sure it load properly.
I add this line in the sysinit.1 config file:

/bin/Net &
/bin/Net.ether82557 &
sleep 2

So, the problem was that the driver need some time to initialize properly.
It take at least 2 second of delay.
