This is a PCI master or target abort - I forget which. It's
bad - something is seriously wrong with the PCI bus, on either
the host side or the NIC. Things to experiment with will
- Move the NIC to a different slot.
- Try the NIC in a different machine.
- Fiddle with BIOS settings.
- Try a different card (it *must* be a busmastering one)
in that machine.
