SubjectRe: Weird problems with ne2000 clone

Unfortunately (?) there are lots of "Winbond" ne2000 clones, ranging
from a simple/early 8390 clone to recent DP83905 software configurable
clones (and now even PCI clones!)

Well, without any kernel messages of any sort, pointing your finger at
the ne2000 card and jumping up and down may not be 100% justified.

The RZ1000 chips are known to be buggy, and you can get into
trouble with them if you aren't careful (see "man hdparm").
