2.0.24 changes internal kernel structures. We had to do that to fix the
tcp bug and the ip fragment bug. You'll just have to get a new driver from
ET. Unfortunately your machine without the big fix can be brought down by
anyone who chooses to play and the big fix means binary only modules break.

People with 2.0.24 should also always make sure they built all their source
modules again - including iBCS2 and DOSemu's little helper module if they
use it.
