it's a NetBSD3-STABLE with patch for the Promise SATA300 HBA. ifconfig
is not older than the build. (i made an iso for this one.)

i tried on both sides, on the switch and on the machine itself: same result.
today i put another fxp interface into the machine (into one of the two
PCI slots; the is populated by the SATA card) and turned off the second
serial port, thus freeing IRQ3. i pointed both onboard NICs to IRQ3 (as
they do when set to autoconfigure, which i also tried) and tried to use
the now as fxp2 known (pci) card.
interestingly, the handshake works and it has a link (Cisco 1924, 10MBit).
but it doesn't work: ping 126.96.36.199 (the machines' IP) goes into
nowhere, pinging the default gateway dito.
i then tried setting the same IP (188.8.131.52) on another machine in the
same subnet, which got recognized on the console!
