Hi,

I installed Linux RH 7.3 on a Dual 3GHz P4 CPU Asus P4GX8 MB
and since the on board 100 MBit controller didn't seem to be
supported by this Linux version (doubt whether any version does
in the moment) I put in a 3Com 905c and run it with the 509 vortex
driver.

I'm seeing this in /var/log/messages and the machine
is very slow on network copies and activity.
