ok, now I am a step further: I have a testcase, where I used a 10MB file with random
content. I scp'd this file from another machine to the laptop:

joerg@laptop> scp otter_machine:/tmp/10mb_file /tmp/

with the 8139too NIC module this takes 8 minutes, 32 second and has
about 97500 error on the NIC, all are RC oerruns.

When I do the same with Donald Beckers rtl8139 module then the transfer
takes 10 seconds and has about 1865 errors - not perfect but much better.

I dont want to generalize, but for my case the rtl8139 module seems
to fit much better.

Thanks for your help
Joerg
