FC5 is running as a VMware Workstation 5.5.1 guest OS. Network interface eth0
cannot be activiated following upgrade of kernel to 2.6.16-1.2107. Fails to

Do not have this problem on the 32-bit FC5 guest OS after upgrading the kernel
I do have this problem on the 32-bit FC5 guest OS after upgrading the kernel
I also have this problem on all three of my network interfaces with this kernel
on an x86_64 system. Had to revert to 2.6.16-1.2096.
Also happens here - Dell Precision 450 (32bit) using e1000 module, vanilla
install. 2.6.16-1.2096 works as expected. A basic ping test seems to work, but
any higher-level usage results in a stalled connection.
failed for me as well - had to revert to 2.6.16-1.2096 from 2.6.16-1.2107.
under kernel 2.6.16-1.2096
