Yeah, but it doesn't matter. The system is no more useful running with a
network card than it is rebooting itself. Just make sure that it doesn't
reboot itself more than N times in M hours, and you'll be fine... The
network admin needs to be paged in any case. The network card COULD be
dead, in which case the administrator needs to replace it. Otherwise, a
reboot could solve the problem.
