VERY timely.. I just spent about two days battling with token ring on my boxes. For
some odd reason, the existing driver worked fine on a 486DX2-66 machine, but failed
sporadically with the "ARrggh .. 50ms timeout.." error on a DX4/100. I was becoming
convinced that it was a race condition triggered by the faster CPU and spent today
trying to chase down a programming manual for the NIC's. I'm using 3Com 3C619Bs,

I'd greatly enjoy hearing from anyone else actively banging on TR support under
Linux. Repeated searches of comp.os.linux.networking turn up nothing!
