you definatly have to correct the link-light issue when the system is off, 
otherwise i dont think youll ever get it working.  are there any ACPI standby 
modes in the power section (thats where mine are) in the bios?  S3 seems to 
be the best option.

in freebsd, my into pro100s work without any other intervention (aside from 
setting S3 in the bios, IBM machines), but i have one IBM with a dual port 
pro1000, and its not waking properly right now (but i havent troubleshot that 
one any, as its my server and never turns off anyway).

cheers,
