I hate playing "Fllow this URL".  Get to the point and provide a

I skimmed it for you. The e1000e module in kernel 2.6.27 contains a
bad bug that can corrupt EEPROM. I think the latest F9 updates are
kernel 2.6.26, so it's not a Fedora issue at present. Move along.


However, if you are on F10, or rolling your own kernel... it might make for a good read.
