it's 1.99.14 now, and this problem is still pending.
I just found out something interesting : if I run win95
before starting linux, the "eth0: mismatched read page pointers..."
appears after the first ethernet network access...

Jun 9 17:02:31 tower kernel: eth0: mismatched read page pointers 1 vs 4c.
Jun 9 17:02:31 tower kernel: eth0: mismatched read page pointers 1 vs 4d.
Jun 9 17:02:31 tower last message repeated 7 times

If I run linux after hard reseting/power cycling my computer,
there's no problems. The socket destroyed problem also
disappear...

I think the problem is the ne2000 initialization...
