Dear members of the list.

For your information I had what I suspect to be a problem 
performing backups over a network using the epro100 driver. Driver 
used is as per the 2.4.1 kernel and using dump with the card set to 
100Mbs full duplex. The server would lockup hard and require a 
reset - the error message on the console was a scsi timeout on the 
disc. Furthermore when this occurred you could not telnet etc to 
the server. One characteristic seemed to be the volume being 
backed up. At the moment the clients are still using the epro100 

I switched to the latest Intel driver and had no problems backing up 
about 10GB.
