26 Feb 2001:
Rebuilt the kernel to version 2.4.2-ac4, to include the latest tulip patches.

The performance is better, but it is still not quite right; this time it
received just over 48 MBytes before hanging :-(

Using a 3C590B card on Friday, I ran IPTRAF for about 6 hours, and several
GBytes of data with no problems at all. Unfortunately I have only one such
card available, and our suppliers are quoting mid-March for delivery.
