SubjectRE: Camino 2 (82815/82820) v2.4.x eth/sound related lockups
I have 2 new systems with eepro 100's on the MB, and each one has that
problem with the eepro100 driver. Switching to the e100 module has solved
all issues with that card.

Both of these machines are Pogo linux rack mount units, and Pogo's default
RH 7.1 install is using the e100 driver also. For grins, I swithed those
boxes to the eepro100, and both lost their network connections within a few
hours if lightly loaded, and they lost it just a few minutes into large
(>100 meg) file transfers. Ftp or NFS, it didn't matter. (The kernel kept
running, the console was usable. Unloading the eepro100 didn't work,
however, the machine needed a power off reboot to get the net back)

After reinstalling RH 7.1 on both machines, and changing the detected
eepro100 driver back to the e100, the machines have not crashed since they
were put into service, some 20 days ago.

FWIW, one Pogo box has an Intel i810 MB, with onboard eepro100 eth, and an
additional pci intel nic, the other is a Tyan Thunder LE S2510, with a pair
of onboard nics.
