	Then there is somthing else very wrong.  When we started
receiving the new KN100TX units with the 21143-PD I found that the .89
driver does not work.  A simple upgrade to v0.91 fixed everything.  I
now have over 30 of the new cards in production, with a range of
motherboards and BIOS, 2.0.x, 2.1.x and 2.2.x every one fails with
v0.89, and works fine with v0.91.
