What is the driver it uses on the working kernel vs the non working one?

I'd expect it to use the e100 driver, but maybe there is a newer
driver with a different name. Long ago there was the eepro100(?) driver,
before Intel started releasing their own drivers, I'm not sure if that
driver is even present anymore in the 2.6.x kernels(I used it in the
2.2.x days and maybe 2.0 I don't recall)

The driver config is usually in /etc/modprobe.conf

worst case run lsmod under each config to try to find the
differences in what driver is loading.
