    SubjectRe: eepro100 - Linux vs. FreeBSD
    I have been running 2.2 on many machines since its release and have updated
    to the latest version of 2.2 many times. All of these machines have an
    eepro100 and I never saw a single problem with any of them. I updated most
    of my machines to 2.4 over the course of a week and within a day of updating
    each of them showed the problem. This may be pure chance but it sounds to
    me as if it is a difference with the 2.4 kernel.

    The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating system
    and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world
