No, no; ifconfig says the interface is up and running with both
kernel images. Obviously *a* tulip module is installed (one way
or the other). Happens to be two different ones.
I compiled tulip in to 2.4.18 whereas I don't know how the prepackaged
2.2.20-idepci worked. I'd kinda like to try the driver that shipped with
2.2.20 but I don't know how to answer configuration questions to get it
insted of the driver I now have compiled into 2.4.18.
I don't know the driver in 2.4.18 is malfunctioning; I know only
four things that seem relevant:
ifconfig is happy;
netstat only reports success with 2.2.20-idepci not with my
the base addresses used by the two tulip modules are different;
the configuration files the two kernel images are booting under
are the same.
(Of course, the configuration files ask for different things because of
what they find in the /proc directories but that is a fact I don't know
how to exploit in tracking down my problem.)

Googling and then looking at the tulip_core.c driver shows that the
tulip driver is used with this card.
Did you compile the tulip driver into your kernel? Or did you compile
it as a module? If as a module did you load the tulip driver in
/etc/modules? If you are using the Debian tuned kernels then
everything is compiled as a module and you will need to include tulip
