Subject: May 15th Snapshot ed1 problems

I've installed NetBSD-1.0A 15th May snapshot on a Micron P90 PCI system.
During the install I used ed1 (a 3c503) to mount the installation
files and there were no problems.

However when I boot from the hard disk, I get error reports from ed1
and the network doesn not function: 

ed1: length does not match next packet pointer
ed1: len ffff nlen d9ff start 20 first 24 curr 26 next ff stop 40
ed1: NIC memory corrupt - invalid packet length 55807

This applies whether I use CGD's netbsd.GENERIC or the copy_kernel
INSTALL image.

Rebuilding the kernel is hard without a network interface.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
