	first a billion of "sorry" for my "user" mail. i've forgot to give
you more details

> What kind of problems?
the board just stops to receive and send

no. no error messages
> Have you run any diag programs?
not yet (too many machines)
> Have you looked through dmesg and insmod outputs>
everything fine. the board works well but after some heavy trafic it just
stops to work
> What have you done to resolve the probelm?
checked if it's on a bus master slot, tryed drivers from 2.2.14, 2.2.15,

now occours a thing to me:
in 2.2.14 kernel the board works very well
i've put only the driver from 2.2.14 and it gets more time working but
still hangs.
by teory it shouldn't happen because if it works with 2.2.14 kernel it
should work on 2.2.16 with 2.2.14 driver
but, i'll check now if the pci driver for sis has changed from 2.2.14,

i'll run diagnostics and check for this
i was asking only for if it's a common/knowed issue.
thanks for help,
