Nope, biut keep in mind using just the interface name is *WRONG* for
ethernet drivers. You *MUST* use the complete path. The "No Such Device"
error means exactly that... The device does not exist. Check your /dev
hierarchy to see what is bein published for the eepro100 network card ("ls
-l /dev/net" should show you).
