It's me again. I had posted a question about a month ago asking
about ethernet cards and drivers. I got a few responses but the thread
mutated into a discussion about the relative merits of NFS vs. FTP :-).
It doesn't really matter because I still wasn't able to find a card...
Until now, that is. I have someone who wants to sell me an A4066. I am
unfamiliar with this card or it's manufacturer (Ameristar?). The
questions I have are these:
What is a fair price for this card (he wants $200 U.S.)?
Will it work in an A3000?
Does it support multicasting?
Does the NetBSD-Amiga driver for it support multicasting?
Are there any advantages/disadvantages to this card vs. others
I know this may not be the most appropriate place to post this but I
thought that I could get some feedback about this card WRT NetBSD.
Much thanks in advance,
