GA-EP45-DS3P occasionally boots with "dead" NIC

    Hi,

    I'm running 32 bit Fedora 9 on a GA-EP45-DS3P with a Q9450 and 4GB of RAM. Most of the time, it works perfectly, but every so often (perhaps 1 out of 15 boots) it comes up with Ethernet port eth0 inactive. I can't simply start it (e.g., with ifup eth0 or /etc/init.d/network restart), I have to reboot. It's like the hardware fails to initialize properly. Has anyone else seen this?

    I know there is another NIC on the mobo, but I thought I'd see if this is a known problem before I spend a lot of time diagnosing it.

    Tx,

    JC
