SubjectRe: 3C905b partial lockup in 2.4.5-pre5 and up to 2.4.6-pre1
Andrew, 
Although I don't run
Redhat, your response
tells me that, even though I
was feeling that it was a
kernel problem, it could be
a userspace issue, which I
also suspected. Debian
updated their nettools
today, so I will see if that
helps in any way. Thanks
for your help. If you think
of anything else that might
be an issue, please let me
know.
