Switched out my DLink 530+ card to a card with a
National Semiconductor Corporation DP83815 chipset.

My compiled 2.4.20ctx-16 kernel where I enabled this network device
and disable USB and soundcard drivers.
What seemed to kill the box before now don't kill it. With the
downloaded ctx-16 kernel I would only be able to run for a short
period before it would crash it seemed.
However I see one difference now.
I keep getting entries in the syslog similar to this one
kernel: eth0: increased Tx threshold, txcfg 0xd0f01016.
(everytime 2 bits higher txcfg value then the last one)
I had 10 of them so far (didn't have any of them before).
This might really don't mean nothing but I know it seemed before that
the crashes would occur when you had heavily or rapid network

Hope this does it and if it does that it helps someone else.
