   Sorry for the delay in responding - I've been at Comdex. The Pro/100+ is
based on the 82558 chip which has an integrated 82555 PHY. There should be
no programatic difference between the 82557+82555 and 82558, but I haven't
actually tested the Pro/100+ or heard from anyone who has either. If you
do decide to get one, please let me know if it works. :-)
