I used to work for Compaq when those came out.  (One of my first posts to 
thsi list was about this)  Nice box at the time.  Rotten card.  Since I was 
in events, and we did the trade shows, we were the first to notice the 
autonegotiation problem with the cards.  The driver was rewritten to bounce 
the interface on startup to work around this.  You can insert a shell 
command in the config.xml to do this.  Just an ifconfig down, and ifconfig 
up will do it.  As to the PCN, just get a new card.  And the power 
management you turned off is why the reboot will not work...  Turn power 
management back on with no sleep settings.
