Hmmm AOL instant messenger?

So quick aside, does anybody know if excessive network collisions are likely
a problem of a poor kernel/module compile, or just my hardware.  I know this
isn't too related, but my Linksys 10/100 21140 Tulip is used correctly by 98
and NT, detected and ifconfiged right by Linux, even supported on their
website... it is the PNIC chipset, but when I try to talk to the internet
through the mac on linux, I notice that it can't, and I get a collision and
sequestering of the line every two seconds on my Linksys 8 port 10/100 hub,
then it resets.   Collide reset collide reset etc.
and telnet never gets through nor does ping.  I am using caldera 1.3 and
kernel 2.0.35.

Any ideas?
