Description of problem:
I'm getting my test machine caught up with Rawhide after being down
for a few weeks and I ran across a familiar issue. With kudzu
1.1.53-1 and kernel 2.6.3-184.108.40.206.1 the NIC doesn't work and I get a
lot of "transmit errors" to the console. I rebooted back to kernel
2.6.3-2.1.242 and with kudzu still enabled get the same errors.
It seems similar to bug 98767 w/FC1, but didn't happen with a fresh
FC2Test1 install. Sorry I don't know what version of kudzu I had
before the recent update. I know it had been updated since I installed.
Without kudzu running lspci reports:
00:09.0 Ethernet controller: 3Com Corporation 3c905 100BaseTX [Boomerang]

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 107389 ***
That's the bug number I was looking for.
Anyway, I'm not sure it is a duplicate: the same card worked file
with the original Kudzu/Kernel from FC2Test1. This is a regression
somewhere. I will give the "special parameters" from that bug a try
