Please help !

Attention: Andrey V. Savochkin (or whoever is willing
to help me)...

Hello, I got your email from a newsgroup i found on
google.  I have the 2.4.7-10 kernel installed
successfully in my 4-way p200 machine 1G of ram.  I am
trying to install 2.4.10, but it is giving me the
problem: "Receiver lock-up bug exists: enabling

Checking the /var/log/messages file, it indicates that
it can't detect my ethernet card.  How can this happen
if everything works fine in my 2.4.7-10 kernel?  The
.config files are virtually the same.

output to understand why the ethernet card is not

I have tried adding : 'append "noapic"' to lilo.conf,
but it didn't change a thing.  Hope you can help me
out with this.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated!
