This is a known bug. As I recall, Andrey S, maintainer of eepro100.c (not Donald, at least I *think* so) stated the 20:th this month on this list that he is aware of this bug and that he will fix it. You might want to try the driver that intel published. I've heard about people beeing successful with that one.

Here is the link (which you might have, but I provide it anyway):

> Hi,
> I have problems using two Pro / 100 + Cards (Board assembly 721383-009) on Redhat 6.2 with kernel 2.2.16
> The error in syslog is:
> kernel: eth0: card reports no resources.
> kernel: eth0: card reports no RX buffers.
> After one or more reboots, the cards seem to work until the next reboot.
> Probably there is a problem with the driver ? BTW, should I use the intel driver instead of Donald Beckers' one ?
> Thanx, Andy.
