Hi Simonn,

If you have the source look in /usr/src/linux/drivers/net; it will be
listed. I have it in 2.3.13. I guess it is 2.2.9 and other 2.2's
2.2.9 was an ok kernel as I remember. 2.3.15 is now out.
For 2.2 kernels probably 5.2 needs updating. look in ....linux/Doc*/changes
Another possibiliy: get a later linux dist or freebsd3.2.
