FWIW, I've had good luck with 'em in the past.

Hmm... Actually the built-in 3c59x (eth0) doesn't work, but the PCMCIA
wireless card (Orinoco) does. And, your're right; I don't think that there's
anything I can do about the IRQ. Also, note that _both_ work fine under

If I were to try a generic kernel (aka Marcelo's 2.4.19 or the latest
pre-20), are there any patches that I'd need to apply to make it work well
with SuSE? I know that in the past I used to apply the ALSA patches, but
with ALSA integrated, that should no longer be an issue. Are there any
others that I need to be aware of (yeah, I _should_ track this stuff better,
but I just don't have the time).

I'll try the acpi=off tomorrow morning.
