Major IP storm on fxp

I wonder if anybody has experienced IP Storms on release 4.8 on fxp drivers. 
My configuration is:

	- Intel D845GERG2L motherboard with Pentium 4 2.2 GHz and lan on-board
	- PC2700 memory
	- Adaptec 29160N with Seagate 15k.3 HDD
	- 3Com 905C Nic

When the Intel nic (onboard) and drives are used in the same time (like a 
heavy rsync) the system locks and generate MAJOR Ip storms - so bad that the 
switch locks as well. Running the same thing on 3Com board is fine.
During the process the keyboard is unresponsive and there is no sign of kernel 
panic or error messages, but  the HDD light is solid red.

	For other details please contact me on e-mail.
