What do these Token Ring errors mean?

I  have been using RedHat 3.03 with token ring patches to the 1.2.13 kernel for several
months with minimal problems.  I have recently received some errors
and hoped someone might be able to tell me what they mean or how I can fix them.

error 1 - "ASB error 00 in cmd 0D"

error 2 - "kernel : tr0 : adapter error: ISRP_EVEN : 08 "

error 3 - "kernel : tr0 : error on xmit_ui_frame request: 00"

error 4 - "kernel : tr0 : Transmitter busy for more than 50 msec.
Donald resets adapter, but resetting the IBM tokenring adapter takes a
long time.  It might not even help when the ring is very busy, so we
just wait a little longer and hope for the best."

This system is at a remote site and I have to call someone to have
them reboot the system  to get it inserted into the ring again.  
Is there any way reset the adapter without rebooting?  

Can the time the adapter waits for a response be extended for longer
than 50msec?

please upgrade to RedHat 4.0 then recompile your kernel adding the Token Ring support. It's better supported. I was getting the same errors and solved it after doing the upgrade.

I have every intention of upgrading to 4.0, my problem is that I have other systems to support and I wanted to be able to fix it on the fly.  The system is remote and that makes it very difficult to upgrade software and recompile the kernel.  One tiny mistake and poof you don't even have a system that works partially any more.
