I found a patch at:
http://www.linuxhq.com/patch/20-p0827.html

But I don't know how to use it.

Hhe patch looks like this:

--- ip_fragment.c.old   Thu Apr 16 12:25:34 1998
+++ ip_fragment.c       Thu Apr 16 12:29:02 1998

                {
                        NETDEBUG(printk("Invalid fragment list: Fragment over size.\n"));
                        ip_free(qp);

What you want to do is go to the directory where the changed file is (on my machine it's in /usr/src/linux/net/ipv4), and run

patch < [patchfile]

where [patchfile] is the name of the file that you've saved the patch in (2.0.33-fragment.diff if you pressed the download button on linuxhq). Make sure that you're running a 2.0.33 kernel or the patch might not apply, or might not work if it does apply.

Once you've done this rebuild and install your kernel (this is described in /usr/src/linux/README).

Thanks!

I tried a patch -p0 < patchfile from the /usr/src directory as I use to do.!
