e100 Ethernet network card won't work using Fedora Core 2 kernel 2.6.6-1.435



I upgraded to the latest Fedora Core 2 kernel 2.6.6-1.435 and now I can't seem to use my network connection. With the 2.6.6-1.435 kernel my e100 card does not seem to work. I can not even ping my gateway. When I reboot and use the 2.6.5-1.358 kernel, my network connection works fine.

Kernel's I've tried:
-------------------------
kernel-2.6.5-1.358
kernel-2.6.6-1.435

kernel-2.6.5-1.358 Ethernet dmesg info:
--------------------------------------------------------
e100: Intel(R) PRO/100 Network Driver, 3.0.17
e100: Copyright(c) 1999-2004 Intel Corporation
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
e100: eth0: e100_probe: addr 0xea009000, irq 10, MAC addr 00:20:ED:3D:93:59
ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team
e100: eth0: e100_watchdog: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex
eth0: no IPv6 routers present

kernel-2.6.6-1.435 Ethernet dmesg info:
--------------------------------------------------------
e100: Intel(R) PRO/100 Network Driver, 3.0.18
e100: Copyright(c) 1999-2004 Intel Corporation
divert: allocating divert_blk for eth0
e100: eth0: e100_probe: addr 0xea009000, irq 10, MAC addr 00:20:ED:3D:93:59
ip_tables: (C) 2000-2002 Netfilter core team
e100: eth0: e100_watchdog: link up, 100Mbps, full-duplex
eth0: no IPv6 routers present

I noticed that the new kernel has the 3.0.18 version of the Intel driver and the old one uses the 3.0.17 version. Is there a problem with the 3.0.18 version or the 2.6.6-1.435 kernel with the e100 Ethernet cards?

Anyone know or have a suggestion?

Jeff
