      I fully expect people to chime in with, "But it works for me!" I
      can't comment specifically on an I4150, but I had similar problems
      with an I8200 and RH 8/9. I had to diddle the APM scripts to resolve
      the problem. (Just curious: are you using DHCP to get your eth1
      address, or is it static? Mini-PCI interface or PCMCIA?)

      I wrote up my I8200 experiences at
      <http://kristol.org/david/dell-i8200/i8200.html>, in particular the
      changes I made to the APM scripts. It's possible some information
      there will help.
