SubjectNetwork hang with 2.4.1-pre9 and 3c59x


I read about some problems with my ethernet card (3c59x) but it was rumored
that they were fixed in 2.4.1-pre8. I have 6 IDE drives raided together and
was stress testing the disk IO. Suddenly there was no network!

[root@image log]# uname -a
Linux 2.4.1-pre9 #1 SMP Mon Jan 22 12:59:32 EST 2001 i686 unknown

From the log:

NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: transmit timed out
eth0: transmit timed out, tx_status 00 status e681.
