I recently ungrade the ethernet card to a 3com 3c509B PCI card. And am
having some problems.
I am using Redhat 5.1 and it reconized to card right off. However, I am
having spectacular crash using the card. Whenever I try to us NFS, FTP, or
use SAMBA to transfer files to it (most notably with NFS), my system crash
almost immediately with kernal panic messages involving the task schedular,
or spits out a message that scrolls up the screen about being unable to
address the IRQ at such-an-such address. I think this maybe a problem with
the drivers. Anyway, this is of great concern to us since we were planning
to us the Lynx server as a fileserver and need 100 base T connectivity. I
only wish I knew what the best type of 100 base T card, to get that will
work as reliably as my 3com 3c509B card did before.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!
