Problem with e1000 driver

Using current fai kernel (fai-kernel 1.15 as well as self-compiled from 
linux-source-2.6.18 2.6.18.dfsg.1-9), I can't boot boxes with e1000 
ethernet: Message is "e1000_request_irq: Unable to allocate interrupt 
Error: -38" as soon as IP-Config tries to initialise the interface.  
Anybody came across this?

Latest Debian installer (etch rc1 businesscard) boots fine and can access 
the net, but of course has e1000 modular and not in the kernel, and doesn't 
use nfs root.  Is there a hack that'd allow me setting up nfs root from 
initrd (can I boot through an initrd with PXE?)

Any ideas?
