Hi Chris,

had the same here.
only solution was to recompile a new kernel to make the 8139too become a
AND to use hotplug instead of cardmgr.

it was suggested to me to try it again with the default kernel (bf24),
to see if installing hotplug (and renmoving cardmgr) would be enough,
but I still had not the opportunity to do so. I'll post a mail as soon
as I have results.
