Please verify whether this problem persists with forcedeth 0.59 (in 2.6.20) or forcedeth-0.60 (in the 1.21 driver package).
dmesg output too large to post or send in private. here's a link: http://rshendershot.home.mchsi.com/dmesg_nforce.txt
I'm still working on the update. The URL you posted provides for FC5 but I need FC6 x86_64. Should I install the rpm for FC5? Do you have an alternate URL?
The updates-testing repo does not yet show a kernel 2.6.20. Whle I'm awaiting your reply I'll build one from kernel.org. Will that provide the info you need?
I've tried this with vmnet unloaded (using services control)
