I am having dificulty getting an ASIX AX88140 ethernet card to work under
the 2.4.3 kernel.
    It works perfectly under a 2.2.19 kernel and is found properly, but when
trying the 2.4.3 kernel it fails with the message:

    tulip: eth1: MMIO region (0x0@0x0) unavailable, aborting

tulip-diag still detects the card, here is the results of it under 2.4.3:

tulip-diag.c:v2.06 1/8/2001 Donald Becker (
