I'm not Dell, but I can tell you that I've been unable to use any kernel
later than 2.4.18-27, most likely due to tg3 problems.  Every 2.4.20 kernel
that Red Hat has released (under 7.3 anyway) consistently dies with a stack
overflow within a week on my PE2550 firewall/router that's running VLANs on
a tg3 interface.

I was wondering if anyone else on the list has seen this.  See these
Bugzilla entries for more info:

I'm going to order an Intel NIC to see if it makes the problem go away.
