           "insmod dm9601.ko"           ;;Auto Detection Mode (Suggest)
           "insmod dm9601.ko mode=0"    ;;Force 10M Half Duplex
           "insmod dm9601.ko mode=1"    ;;Force 100M Half Duplex
           "insmod dm9601.ko mode=4"    ;;Force 10M Full Duplex
           "insmod dm9601.ko mode=5"    ;;Force 100M Full Duplex
