What Linux kernel, netboot and packet driver versions are you using? I mostly have 3C905C on my private network, and all work fine.

I really thought of having fixed this problem. gero. -- Gero Kuhlmann Tollenbrink 18 Groote Gracht 33 email@example.com 30659 Hannover 26723 Emden firstname.lastname@example.org 04921/997561 =========================================================================== This Mail was sent to netboot mailing list by: Gero Kuhlmann <email@example.com> To get help about this list, send a mail with 'help' as the only string in it's body to firstname.lastname@example.org.
