Question 3c589 on Hitachi Vision book locks up under heavy load.

My 3c589 on a Hitachi Vision Book locks up under heavy load.

The 3c589 works with windows but locks up as a Samba or as a FTP server. Big time collisions.

You wrote, "Symptoms of timing problems can include card recognition problems, lock-ups under heavy loads, high error rates, or poor device performance. Only certain host bridges have adjustable timing parameters: check the corresponding man page to see what options are available for your controller."

Which man page would help me? I have looked at many.

Below is some debug output from ifconfig and cardctl.
