How are the transfer speeds when it is actually running? Do you see many

It kinda sounds like a general network problem to me...if you run:
  ifconfig -a

Do you see many errors? If you do..run this:

What is the duplex setting? Does it match what is on the other side
(switch, or system if it is a cross-over cable) What is the link between
the two systems? 100Mbit LAN, or are you going over a router or
