For me should'nt be upper than 2 or 3 % on a low class network (low level hub)
after, you must have one hardware defective...
Just have a look on your capture where error come from... and try changing the net card.

WOW!!! less than one percent with a good switch? I would posit that you have to have a very crappy cable and a broken switch. There should be *NO* malformed packets on the network.
Also, there should not be any malformed packets even on a hub based 
network.  You will see collision fragments (jam bits) but you shouldn't 
see malformed packets.
