I am in the process of updating my notebook to RHEL5 so that I can test
the RTEMS4.9.1. There were few bugs in the release, which I have
fixed. I can release the updated source code for the RTEMS4.8 soon if
someone is interesting in testing the code.  This version has been tested
intensively for our applications that it is very stable for both of the
100 MHz and 1GHz NICs.  I have improved the performance of
the 1GHz NIC as well. Please let me know, if any one is interested
in testing the 4.8 version.
