Redhat Support suggested that I post this!  I didn't know which component to post under...

Randomly the NIC on my CA810E fails to be initialized properly resulting in the dreaded:

eth0 card reports no RX buffers
eth0 card reports no resources

This happens randomly at boot time, probably a third of the time.  If I try to bring down / bring up the 
network via ifdown / ifup after this has happened I still have the same problem.

I have succesfully installed and am using the latest kernel 2.2.16-3.  My basic system is simply Redhat 
6.2 right out of the box.

If you need more info, please let me know.

(updating an ancient bug)

Can you try to reproduce with a current Red Hat or kernel.org kernel?

This issue is hopefully fixed in the current release.  There has been no
response to additional requests for information, so this bug is being closed.

Please file a new bug if behavior persists in current kernels.
