I'd love to - I just don't have any 64-bit PCI NIC cards lying about :(  The 
MoBo in this box has 5 or 6 PCI slots, but they are ALL 64-bit. 

I also noticed another poster raised the same problem a few days ago using 
4.7.  Do you know of a specific patch to the bge driver which is in -STABLE, 
or was this suggestion really just a best guess suggestion? 

BTW: my question sounds cheeky - but I mean it sincerely.
