Description of problem:
Machine is a Gateway E-4200, a very vanilla Intel BX board with a 3COM 3C905 in
a PCI slot. Network doesn't work and things like this are in the logs:
eth0: Host error, FIFO diagnostic register 2000
eth0: PCI bus error, bus status 00a0002a
eth0: Transmit error, Tx status register d0
Previous Redhat releases run just fine on this hardware, in fact it's normal
duty has it running a rather ancient RH6.2. Trying to test RHAS on as many
platforms as I can get at and this one failed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHAS Beta
3. Watch it fail to bring up the network
