However, a PCMCIA driver upgrade might be useful.  Since this is not
the newest version of Mandrake, presumably you're running an older
version of the PCMCIA drivers.

What do you mean when you say the ethernet device "crashes"?

You can upgrade your PCMCIA drivers (including the 3c575_cb driver)
without touching your kernel or even rebooting.

More meaning of 'crashes'

What I meant by 'crashes' is that my only recourse seems to be a reboot to get the ethernet device working again. After this message is displaye once, I can't get any connectivity (can't ping my own IP). Even if I log in as root and do a '/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart', when eth0 comes back up, the same error message 'eth0: transmit timed out' continues to be displayed (every 2-3 seconds, until I reboot).
