Description of problem:
Occasionally while surfing or reading newsgroups, etc., the network suddenly
stops working on my computer.  the relevant part of /var/log/messages starts
reading as follows:
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: hermes @ IO 0x100: Card removed while waiting
for command completion.
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: eth0: Error -19 transmitting packet
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: eth0: IRQ handler is looping too much!
Shutting down.
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: hermes @ IO 0x100: Card removed while waiting
for command completion.
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: eth0: Error -19 transmitting packet
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: hermes @ IO 0x100: Card removed while issuing
command.
Dec 30 19:38:27 localhost kernel: eth0: Error -19 transmitting packet

But, I never removed, or even touched the card.  /var/log/messages then fills
with the last two lines repeating, the system becomes sluggish, my hard disks
start thrashing ... and the only thing I can do to fix it is a complete reboot.
Here's my hardware: 'lspci'

NOTE THE SOUND CARD AND PCMCIA CARD ON THE SAME IRQ?
