Question network card will not load properly

I dual boot windows xp and slack 9.1. Whenever I shutdown windows and then start linux the network card module will not load and i get about 150 error messages while its booting. however if i then reboot back into linux it will load properly every time. I have tried releasing the ip address from windows before i shutdown but that didn't work. Does anyone have any thoughts about this?

thanks for your help,

I have a similar problem with a nexnic pci card and a old mainboard (don't remember the brand, runs award bios). It seems to be either a mainboard or bios problem, since the same card works perfectly on another pc... I suppose a missing reset signal?

However there is an easy workaround: I simply press the reset button at boot prompt when rebooting: that forces a cold boot and everything works.
