Switch is experiencing errors

I have a cross over between the inside of my Pix 501's interface, and my 2924 switch.  Both the pix and switch are set to full duplex 100mb.  However, I keep getting errors in the switch that state "FA0/1 is experiencing errors." I tried a different port and I'm getting the same message.

Any ideas?

Like jasonr0025 said I would try a know good cable.  I would also try another switch behind the PIX if you have one available.  You could also open up a case with Cisco after you verify the state of the cable.  If the devices are under a smartnet thats the best thing to do, since if it is found to be hardware related they send you out a new device.

Odd.  The switch has received 178,556, but packets have never arrived in the input direction.

Your errors are CRCs, about 1% of the time, and both sides appear to have properly matched speed/duplex settings (no runts, no checksum errors, no late collisions).

Try a different cable, and if that doesn't clear it you probably want to try contacting Cisco.  There could be a software issue, but it's better to either scour the release notes for bugs of potential impact or just let them provide some guidance on software selection.
