You don''t have to switch anything. Download the e1000 driver from the 
intel site or use 2.4.20 which has e1000 available by default. You could 
try and see if there is a newer kernel package for debian available.

If there is no 2.4.20 linux kernel package around for debian (perhaps in 
unstable/testing) the best option is the "compile the driver yourself" path.

Someone else already commented on this.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
