Yes, You are right. Now I find my mistakes. I set the full duplex
options to all my cluster with the eepro100 adapters. Strangely
the adapters we brought one year ago do not have the performance
problem when I set the full duplex mode. But now they do have the
problem with the new one we brought one week ago. Now I removed
the full duplex option, and everything works very well.

Thank you very much for your help :-))

OK, I see.

: Please try my driver

:       ftp://www.scyld.com/pub/network/eepro100.c

For interests, I tried your driver as well. But it seems that your
driver is still for kernel 2.3.X or even earlier, right? It cannot
be compiled with kernel 2.4.12. The error messages said that:

eepro100.c:125: pci-scan.h: No such file or directory
eepro100.c:126: kern_compat.h: No such file or directory
eepro100.c:287: elements of array `pci_id_tbl' have incomplete type
eepro100.c:288: warning: excess elements in struct initializer
eepro100.c:288: warning: (near initialization for `pci_id_tbl[0]')
eepro100.c:288: extra brace group at end of initializer

But since my problem is solved, it is OK for me. Thanks again for
your kindly help. :-))
