I'm not sure that there are problems are in Win98 at all. For example my IBM
EtherJet ISA card will be detected ONLY after cold reboot (via power off/power on;
no options for shutdown will help) without any Windown in that comp (IBM Aptiva) :-((
Yes, this is less harmfull then with 3c905b -- no kernel crash, just card will not
be detected at all but point is that this happens without help from "evil OS"...
