I will post more info on Monday when I am able to power them up.

I'm not so sure the motherboard is broken, I am leaning more towards a
bridge. This computer is a 4U 19 inch rackmount chassis with a PCMIG
CPU and a 12 slot PCI backplane. I have done a lot of testing with this
box trying to characterize this problem. In one case I have put 3 Intel
PRO 100S NICs on the secondary PCI bus and they ran under heavy stress
test loads overnight. The 4 port NIC seems to be the only card that
doesnt want to cooperate.
