Apparently, the hardware guy disabled the ethernet controller's "S/W reset"
option in the EDK. This explains why the PPC got no ACK from OPB when
writing to the reset register, and threw the data check exception. I hope
that this problem is solved, when we enable that option.

Thanks again to all who replied,
