Description Frank Sweetser 2001-07-05 10:40:59 EDT
HP6000 laptop, builtin 3Com "minipci" ethernet adapter.  Worked fine under
stock RH7.1.  Fails at bootup with no link, but repeated ifdown/ifup seems
to eventually work.  No errors are reported by ifconfig.

lspci -v

This defect considered SHOULD-FIX for Fairfax gold-release.
