Good job hyperspace
, You had me lie: I am posting again in this website. As I am too sentimental I didn't throw away (Or sell that is) my BP6 and tried a Linux with it. Same problem here, a little worse:
1. I tried getting acces to some of my network drives (Win2k) with Samba always with the same result: The computer freezes to death. Nothing respond anymore. Hard reboot necessary.
2. I shared a drive with Samba and accessed it with my Win2k machine (reverse operation) and it worked like with my Win2k: Everything wors fine up until... ARP tables are empty. No matter what I tried, ARP tables are empty and only a reboot (soft) can solve the problem. Even unloading and reloading the driver didn't solve it.
Don't sure if he tried a 3Com NIC in PCI slot 3.
I have tried three different controllers each one in every single fscking slot

Dunno about that

No events in the logs.

I tried two BIOS: The one with HTP366, wouldn't boot my machine. The boot process would freeze on the HPT366 screen. So I got it without the HPT366 and that's when I got problems.

Yes. All drivers I could find (Which is probably 3 or 4 for everyone of my NICs). For three different NICs. In every PCI slot. Same problem with every config. I might have rebooted this machine a thousand times.

I honestly think something is screwed up with my BP6 and that's it. Some condo blew up halfway and barely works and the Mobo is just dead. Of course, that's my personal opinion. The fact is - after reading these forums - BP6 are delicate things. With a lot of problems. A little like women
. When you get one that doesn't work the way you want, just try another.

Go ahead, I'll tell you my equivalent tests

Yep, great forums.
