I've also got 6 of them floating around, plus two in another location. It
semi-regularly fails in an Alpha, but we were told that the Alpha

occasionally. It only happens when there's significant load on the network
(usually at 0:45 when the backup occurs). I've just written a wee script
to bounce the card if it fails, so it never bothers me.
I'll have to try the driver that Jason suggested ... Do you have a URL
