I've received today the information about availability
of new version of e1000 driver for Intel Pro/1000T NICs.

Taking into account that upgrade from more old to previous version
of e1000 was very important for our cluster based on Athlon
Tyan S2460 nodes (w/o this upgrade netperf tests simple hang-up
connection after a series of packets droppings and overruns;
but the problems remain on dual PIII Tualatin Tyan mobos),
this information may be interesting also for subscribers of Beowulf
mail list.
