None A favorable resolution on both counts

Re: None Problems with 3c575 and CEM33 on an NEC Versa LX (Brian Mays)

All the problems are now more or less resolved...

-- the failures in the 3c575_cb driver's error handling code are
   partly fixed in 3.1.7, and fully fixed in the 16-Dec-99 beta
   drivers.  I still do not know what is causing the initial error (a
   HostError is supposed to be a PCI bus protocol problem, according
   to the 3Com documentation), but now, it is handled gracefully
   without disrupting network activity.

-- the Xircom card problem turned out to be an IO port conflict with
   another system device, that the Linux kernel had not detected.  A
   note will be added to the HOWTO, that ports 0x300-0x31f should be
   excluded on the Versa LX.
