I got RedHat 7.1 with updated kernel 2.4.9-12
I installed the altered/fixed driver from the file tulip-0.92wax.tar.gz
I got my old image compared to my current one and the new one is lacking in
performance compared to the old one
Did anyone see the same results ?

I timed io procedures from nfs and the net and the old one is about 20%
faster ???@#%#@$
