In Michael L. Hitch's report he has also mentioned that even when he
overcomes the SCSI hang, the ethernet interface also doesn't work.

Well, with a system that has this card as the only disk and network
device, this is not a useful solution. Of course the whole problem
can be worked around by changing the KZPCM-DA against some working
SCSI card plus a working NIC but that's not what we want either.
What we need is a fix :-)
