[tulip] Problem with SMC 9332BDT...

I picked up the tulip-0.92wax.tar.gz driver package yesterday and tried to use 
it with my SMC dual port 10/100 ethernet card (DEC PCI-PCI bridge with two DEC 
21140 MAC chips)  How do I install Becker's tulip driver in place of the 
normal Linux one?  (Linux kernel 2.4.3)  I assume from what I've read I do 

1) Build Linux kernel without DEC generic or Linux tulip driver.
2) Reboot
3) Build Becker's Tulip Driver.
4) insmod pci-scan.o
5) insmod tulip.o
6) done?

I tried doing most of this yesterday, but when I insmod'd the tulip driver it 
dumped all kinds of crap and got stuck in Initializing (according to lsmod).   
I think I still had another driver that was trying to attach to the SMC card 
that was screwing up the tulip module.  Does this make sense?
