I've got a new FBSD 5.3 release install on an old Compaq pII-233 w/ 128M
ram. What I get when the boot fails is

"tx underrun -- using store and forward mode"

repeating infinitely.

Now that a reboot has succeeded here's what dmesg shows for dc0:

dc0: <82c169 PNIC 10/100BaseTX> port 0x1400-0x14ff mem 0x40900000-0x409000ff
irq 11 at device 4.0 on pci0
miibus0: <MII bus> on dc0
lxtphy0: <LXT970 10/100 media interface> on miibus0
lxtphy0:  100baseFX, 100baseFX-FDX, 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX,
100baseTX-FDX, auto
dc0: Ethernet address: 00:a0:cc:40:3e:9b
dc0: if_start running deferred for Giant

Any idea on what is going wrong and how I can fix it?
