Set to media autodetect, maybe?

In this case, this appears to be a buglet in the Lance driver. Apparently,
when it autoconfigures, it sees no carrier for one type of media, and switches
to the other. Maybe it should not be verbose about this on the first try...

I'm copying and follow-up-ing to tech-net, as this doesn't seem to be
Amiga specific.
