Its basically the same driver except the one from intel.com appears to be
1 release newer by looking at e1000_main.c

 * 4.3.15      8/9/02 < intel.com version
 * 4.3.2       7/5/02 < patch-2.4.19-ac4 version

The advantage of the e1000 patch I provided is that you also have the
option to compile the driver into the kernel instead of having it load as
a module which I what I generally do.
