TX errors on eth0

I am using Linux kernel 2.4.6 on a custom MPC823 board. I don't seem to be
having any problem with Ethernet functionality. I am running DHCP, httpd,
telnet, and Samba successfully. If I run ifconfig the number of TX packets
is 0 and there is a large number of TX errors. I am assuming that it is a
problem with the way the transmit statistics is getting updated. Has anyone
else seen this problem?
Does anyone know how to fix it?

Following is the output of ifconfig:

[root at acornbd1 /root]# ifconfig
lo        Link encap:Local Loopback
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0 coll:0

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr AA:55:00:06:14:45
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:
          RX packets:11169 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:0 errors:4444 dropped:66 overruns:0 carrier:0 coll:0
          Base address:0x3d00
