RESEND: Networking failure on PowerComputing PowerWave 604/150

I didn't get any responses to this first time around, so I wanted to resend.


I've got Hoary installed on an OW Mac, but I've been unsuccessful at getting any form of stable networking working.


The internal NIC is detected as eth0 by the MACE module according to dmesg, but ifup says that no device is bound to the eth0 device.


Using an FA311 NIC, it works with the MACE module but has horrible latencies, varying from a fast 1ms to about 5000ms for a ping to the gateway on the LAN. 


I've also tried two intel NICs which work with the e100 driver. They sometimes work for a little while at bootup, but then seem to just die and lose all packets.


Has anybody seen these problems and had success getting Ubuntu running with networking on an OW PowerWave Mac?
