Well I do not think it's a pbm with the network cards because I have 2
boxes with LM9.1 and 1 box with LM9.0 using the same type of card and
they all show the same pbm. Also these Dell 4100 workstation come
pre-installed with W2K and I don't have this pbm under Windows...

What would be the best way to investigate this pbm?

Hmm  I had the same problem with a davicom card..   changed the network
card to a realtek and problem was gone..  I know that a lot of people
will think that the realtek cards ain't very good, but over the last few
year I have found them very reliable.
