Bus master arbitration failure


Such a message (like the one in subject) I obtain regularly starting 
Linux on a typical machine with PCI mainboard and Pentium 60. Message 
concerns the network card - HP J2405 PC LAN NC/16 TP. This card is 
compatible with AMD Lance (the same chip). The same card works properly 
also on the server I run and from I send this letter. During startup the 
card is properly detected, also IRQ, DMA, I/O. Everything is OK up to the 
moment of the mentioned communicate which repeats over a few screens. I 
checked all possible combinations of IRQ and I/O. Also ordinary NE2000 
card was checked and work properly. Putting the HP J2405 again gives 
again described result. What's going on?
