sk0: watchdog timeout

I have a problem with network card. From time to time kernel says

sk0: watchdog timeout

It has (probably) random behavior.

I use FreeBSD 5.4-RELEASE-p8, motherboard is ASUS A8V Deluxe (AMD64,
Athlon64XP 3200+) and internal network card from pciconf -v -l

skc0 at pci0:10:0: class=0x020000 card=0x811a1043 chip=0x432011ab rev=0x13
    vendor   = 'Marvell Semiconductor (Was: Galileo Technology Ltd)'
    device   = '88E8001 Gigabit 32-bit Ethernet Controller with
Integrated PHY'
    class    = network
    subclass = ethernet

This machine should be sent to serverhouse and I am not sure, if it is
ready. :-( Can anyone tell me what is the solution ? To buy another
netcard ?

Thank you,

Vladimir Dvorak
