Lovely.  However, unless you would prefer to continue executing
that process it would be better if you could stick with sky2.
I'm confident that sk98lin will not be updated either in Fedora or
upstream kernels anytime soon.

Perhaps you should give sky2 another look.  FC4.netdev.5 has the
patch which is likely to correct the problem you observed.

Please give that a try and post whether or not it resovles the issue
for you.
