It's not a's a CHRP Longtrail board.  Geert's board has an ISA
slot, and I believe mine has all the hardware for an ISA slot, except the
actual slot was removed.

Geert, how did you get the tulip-diag program to compile on your chrp
machine?  I'd like to give it a try and see what it tells me.

How would I check this?  Perhaps Jeff knows this? :)

What's the next step for debugging this?

Now, as for possible buggy motherboards, wouldn't other PCI devices have
trouble?  Perhaps network cards just show the problem becuase of the high
interrupt delivery rate?

I've got other PCI cards in this machine, and haven't had any trouble with
