I have win98 and I am using samba, every once in a while the transfer
dies. Doesn't happen too often. Transfer speed is very erratic.

That's what NPtcp does...

I am waiting on some samsung cards with "genuine" dec21140's.
Everybody is out of stock on them. A friend lent me two and I tried
out them out in the same machines that are having problems with the
169's. They worked great ( same kernel, driver, etc..) - NPtcp said
better than 90Mbits/s.
