    Thanks for clarifying that, I suspected it to be the case, but wanted
    confirmation since it is a new company laptop :O

    The first thing I did was to reboot in 2.6.25 and verify the ethernet -
    it was fully functional via DHCP.

    Also to me, the MAC address seems fine:
    linux-7vph:/ # ifconfig eth0
    eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:1C:25:95:93:EC
    RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
    TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
    collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
    RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)

    (Right now, I'm using iwlagn, not ethernet)

    Well it loads fine now, but this is after I have switched back to

    Too scared to try 2.6.27 again, but I definitely saw a boot message in
    an asterisk surrounded block that said something about NVRAM checksum(?)...

    From some of the earlier posts I read that this bug surfaced on s2ram /
    s2disk, not sure if there are other corruption "triggers".
