What means "frame" and "carrier" for a interface?
I have many carrier errors on a 3COM.
What's going on?

eth0: 3Com 3c905B Cyclone 100baseTx at 0xe400, 00:50:04:56:92:f2, IRQ 11
8K byte-wide RAM 5:3 Rx:Tx split, autoselect/Autonegotiate interface.
MII transceiver found at address 24, status 782d.
Enabling bus-master transmits and whole-frame receives.
