SubjectRe: Entire LAN goes boo with 2.5.64
Tried  with  a  Realtek  8139B and the Intel Pro100+ adapter. The same
thing happens. The LAN goes crazy and all programs trying to
access or use the LAN on the Linuxbox goes super-slow or crashes.

I am rather lost when it comes to where I should begin to look.

Have not compiled in IPX, network filtering and most other things. The
only network card I have compiled in is the Rtl8139 and the Becker
Intel Pro100+ driver.

Here is my net config: http://tnonline.net/conf.png

I have not compiled in ACPI or APM or APIC. And they are disabled in
BIOS too.
