I tested 0.91 with 2.2.11 and a Kingston card with a 21041 chipset.
0.91 works, but performance doesn't seem as good as with 0.89H.
downloading a 50MB file from contrib.redhat.com results in 17Kb/s as
opposed to 19Kb/s with 0.89H.  CPU utilization was somewhat higher and
there were a large number of collisions according to ifconfig (ca.
10000).  The Kingston card is the interface for my Cox cable modem.  I
haven't given it a full shakedown with my standard netscape session and
masquerading for the rest of the network.
