I'm trying to install an ethernet card to get onto my buddy's LAN and we can't get Windows 98 to recognize the card - we're also experiencing random system freezes whenever the ethernet card is in the system physically.
I finally got the card installed and working, so it seemed. It worked fine for about the first 3 bootups then it stopped working and started freezing again. The BIOS says that the CPU is at 57 degrees celsius, is this bad? Could this be causing the freezing? I will take a look at the IRQ's but I think the freezing might be due to the high temperature. Thoughts?
We got the temperature down but the freezing has not stopped, any ideas? It's down to 44 degrees now.

Is it possible that the program "mprexe" is causing the freezups when Win98 boots up? BTW, the freezeups occur right after Windows asks me to login with a username/password.
