This patch is working great on both of my machines now.

As a side note, on one of the machines I am successfully using the 3c59x driver.  To build it I just
added a "int nr_irqs = 255;" line directly in 3c59x.c.  I can try to look into a more appropriate
solution if you would like.

Thanks for all you do!!
