PE 1550 NIC problem with kernel 2.4.9-34smp, RH7.2 Steve_Boley at

Here's the deal, it looks like the driver from intel was used originally
here.  It can only be used and built as a module.  It was originally built
as module for kernel 2.4.9-31 and now the kernel is 2.4.9-34.  Load the
2.4.9-34 source on the system and dload the latest e100 from intel and run
make install and everything will be fixed.

e100 didn't change *at all* :(
