Isn't there any way to use the funcion "detect_tp()" implemented in the device driver (uCcs8900.c) in a user program? I think that could be the solution... before attaching an IP address to the uCsimm with "ifattach", we could check wether the TP is connected or not.

Er...Micah.. It appears that uCsimm *wants* an ether cable connected
to something, or it will never come up. I never investigated about
booting without an ether hardware connection.
