well, one thing that I noticed - I have a linux router box here running
kernel 2.0.36 - if I use the LATEST driver, the system will lock up and
stop responding to packets (locks the whole machine, crashes the kernel)
after 1 to 1.5 weeks of use.

If I use the 0.99B driver that comes with 2.0.36... well, six weeks now
and humming along.
