I installed 2.0.38 and the problem seems to be gone. But I have some
little side effect now: the machines running netbios over ipx/spx can't
browse windows network now. I think this is because 2.0.38 haven't spx
But the novell app works fine.

I haven't idea about what oltr driver is! :(( My need for ipx/spx is
because this linux box acts as a firewall/masquerading internally from my
department to the rest of the institute. The figure is like:
| | | |
eth0| | | |
MyLinux Novell WinNT AIX
approx.15 machines-----eth1 eth0--approx 15 machines
the machines in both segments (eth1 and eth0) runs windows+netware apps,
as well as some other linux. All of them use private IP's 192.168.9.0/10.0
been masquerade at MyLinux (eth0 has a valid IP).
So I need IPX/SPX support in MyLinux so that novell apps running on eth1
or eth0 can access Novell servers.
If have any suggestion...
