 Ok solved.
 
 Replacing the tulip driver by the dmfe driver did the trick. No more
 RX errors, no more errors at all.
 
 in /etc/modules.conf
   replaced
   alias eth0 tulip
   with
   alias eth0 dmfe

Nice to hear...
Now can you send lspcidrake -v (not lspci -v) directly to me 
so we can get it changed in the MDK installer...

 It uses the tulip module.

 I've seen a few posts mentioning using the module dmfe instead of
 tulip. I will give that a go.

   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.

Cheers
