I guess I am a little confused.  Confused enough to drive into the office
at 2am to make sure I wasn't going crazy.

I just looked in my logs, and I am using the scyld driver.

kernel: eepro100.c:v1.09j-t 9/29/99 Donald Becker

I am wondering if maybe you don't mean an updated version of the driver?
Then new error is
Transmit timed out: status 0090  0c00 at 2033/2093 command 00ca000.
and then of course the wait_for_cmd_done timeout!

Which I think is just the old error, but more descriptive.

So are you recomending that I take this file:

and follow these directions

To get rid of this error?
