I am using the starfire v0.12 with a stock Redhat 6.0 i386 box.

Under heavy network loads such as ftp or network backups, I get the
following message, repeatedly in the messages file.

The machine becomes unavailable to network requests.  A reboot
temporairly resolves the problem.

I am trying to find out if there is a later driver or if this is even
a bug with the driver at all.

I do not know what this message means.  Is anyone able to refer me to
the proper resource to help me resolve this problem?

The web pages listed in the source of the driver is not accessable

I did locate a page that had a pointer to the drive I am currently using.
But there were no updates.

Thanks in advance,
