I don't know if this is a hardware problem or not but maybe someone here could make some sense out
of it? After this, the machine is still usable but the arcnet card is dead. If I reload the
module, it works fine again.. This happens about once a day.
I also run a very similar setup on the other computer here but it has no problems at all.
I tried using irq5 and irq2=9 on this machine and both results were the same.

OK.. about 10 min after I typed that up.. It went down again.. doing a ping buzzy from this machine I get

<NULL>: I don't understand protocol 2048 (800h)
Kernel panic: skput:over: 001447b0:84

Being forced to use my big red button. I thought I saw something else about a skput:over errorr here before.. is there
a patch? Lemme know if you need more info.
