i am also having a system hang problem.  My system hangs when running
ifconfig (e.g. at boot, or from ifup, etc.), or when loading the
eepro100.o module.  i am using redhat 6.2 with kernel 2.2.14 on a dell
dimension L566cx.  The eepro driver version is v1.09j-t 9/29/99

i noticed by looking at /proc/pci that both the eepro and some
on-board usb hardware share the same IRQ (9).  It doesn't seem as if
my BIOS allows changing those IRQs.  That seems a likely candidate for
the problem.  any ideas?
