Which driver version are you talking about?  I didn't follow this
stuff too closely (my EEPro100 always worked when not sitting in
an Asus SP3 board which has problems of its own regarding PCI)
but there is an enhanced and corrected driver besides the
"official" in the Linux kernel.  It always got good critics and
seems to work reliable from what I hear.

Donald Becker's original

Andrey Savochkin's improvements

I don't know whether the ML [EMAIL PROTECTED] (the Linux EEPro
list) is archived somewhere and how useful
is.  But I hope these links to be helpful.
