This is my IPX configuration on two 2.0.33 kernels. I don't have any
2.1.x information.

On the token-ring machine:
Network    Node_Address   Primary  Device     Frame_Type
C0A82C00   0000832D53A7   Yes      eth0       802.2TR 
(yes, it's token-ring. eth0 is the olicom tr driver)

This is my ethernet machine:
Network    Node_Address   Primary  Device     Frame_Type
C0A84402   00A0C956C1A5   Yes      eth0       802.3 

Both machines use IPX auto-configuration.
