After about a year away from NetBSD, I am returning to -current to do
software porting.  Today, I installed the 19991113 i386 snapshot, but the
GENERIC kernel does not boot because of a problem detecting the EEPROM size
for my onboard Intel EtherExpress Pro 10/100 NIC.  The panic is occuring in
fxp_get_info().  I have searched the recent mailing list postings for
"intel", "fxp", "eeprom", etc. and for heads-up messages with no luck in
figuring out what is wrong.  The output for the NIC just before the panic

    fxp0 at pci0 dev 6 function 0: Intel i82557 Ethernet, rev 1
    fxp0 interrupting at irq 11

For now, I am using the GENERIC kernel from the 19990704 snapshot.  I've
successfully updated to sources from this morning, but the kernel still
will not boot.  Is there something I need to add to my custom kernel config
to get things working properly?

Thanks for any help.
