That was my thoughts exactly, but the technician claims it to be an
"autoscanning" device, or something similar, and since it is a local
bus controller, it doesn't need the DMA channel.  You only need to
specify IRQ & Port address.

	VESA VL-Bus specification
	High perfomance peak transfer rate of 132 Mbyte/Sec at 33Mhz

	RJ-45 port for Unshielded twisted pair cable (10Base-T)
	BNC port for thin ethernet (10Base-2)
