Exclamation sendmail transmit timed out error -destination host unreachable

etho: transmit timed out status
I'm getting ready to hurl myself in front of the next large moving vehicle if this issue is not rectified soon. I have a toshiba satellite laptop and a desktop cpu (DFI mainboard 128 megs ram, linksys lne100tx network card) connected by a crossover cable running redhat 9 kernel 2.4 on both. This desktop has given me troubles, just got trident video driver and ev700 monitor working properly. My desktop is set at ip subnet and the laptop is set at ip subnet The laptop loads with no problems barring the extended delay when bringing up sendmail. The desktop, however, brings up an error when sendmail starts it reads: "eth0: Trransmit timed out status fc67e014 (or another combination of numbers and letters)CSR12 00000000, resetting" it repeats it a number of times before moving on to the next item. I can ping the desktop from the laptop but cannot ping the laptop from the desktop - "destination host cannot be reached fom" . I did turn off all plug & play in the bios with no change. The driver for the linksys card in the desktop was automatically loaded and detected & shows up as a network device I have checked IP tables and they are fine so don't think it's a firewall issue. Just learning linux through trial and error. I like working with this OS but I need help getting this network working.

From what I read it is a driver/kernel error. Did you try another network card? this one could be broken.

another network card

Yes, I have tried another network card netgear fa311 and I recieved a etho PCI error tried everthing under the sun to get it to work and to no avail...should I try tulip or maybe update the kernel? This linksys card has me closer to a working network that the netgear card.. I called linksys and got the response I thought I would--linux not supported. any other ideas? have tried searching internet for days. thanks..
p.s. I hope i'm responding to this correctly... first time using this board
