Networking crazyness

I need help - I'm about to go insane.  My network is driving me crazy.  Check
this out:

Windows XP box, XP2400.  SiS integrated ethernet.  
Slack Linux 8.1 box (2.4.22 kernel).  Linksys LNE100TX network card.
Linksys 8 Port 10/100 Hub.

Transferring from Linux to Windows:  3 - 7MB/sec.
Transferring from Windows to Linux:  40 - 200K/sec, with about 200 - 300
collisions per 10 seconds.

Both systems were operating at 100basetx, half duplex.  

When I change the windows box to 10baset, half duplex, I get a much better
850ish K/sec.. standard for 10BT.

The odd thing is, this only seemed to happen after upgrading to 2.4.22.  Until
just before thanksgiving, I was running 2.4.18.  Unfortunately I didn't keep
that kernel, otherwise I'd boot it again and see if it suddenly worked.

Please, can anyone provide any rhyme or reason as to what's going on?

Nearly homicidal,
