[ale] Sporadic TCP/IP packet loss



OS: RHEL3 ES
HW: Dell PE1750, Intel dual port NIC

Since early yesterday morning I have been experiencing a lot of sporadic TCP/IP packet drops on a server in my environment.  No changes were made to the network, the server, the NIC, etc. and all was working fine before Monday.  I have found nothing in the logs on either the server or the switch to which it is connected that point to anything as of yet.  These drops can last as little as two seconds and as long as a couple minutes however the server always comes back online eventually.  I am drawing a blank and am hoping someone can prod me in the right direction...
