What driver version are you using?

The driver version I distribute works fine with the X20 laptop which has
board assembly 000695-001.  The only issue is that the 2.4 kernel
doesn't properly provide the suspend and resume events, and during some
resumes the driver takes a few seconds before reinitializing the NIC.
The resume works properly with the 2.2 kernel.
