Well, swsusp seems to be working right enough on 2.6 (yes, I dared), but
I had to come back: natsemi not working == !eth == BAD BAD!

I think so. Most of the things I like on RedHat's (now Fedora's) kernel
is that it has cool things backported to the stable kernel. With 2.6
they're there, but 2.6 needs heavy testing.

Before I noticed I had no eth, I tested swsusp and acpi which seemed to
be fine. Then I went for alsa, when I remembered I didn't have the
required utils, and when I tried to fetch them DUH no net.

Basically, natsemi loads, the interface gets up, but I see no packets
going on with tcpdump except for me who-has'ing the net for my home gw.

Hugs, Rui
