So if I get one and try it, can I expect a bit of coaching? :-) Will I
need -current, or will 1.3 do? (at the moment everything I have is 1.3,
but I could make an exception for my laptop).
Note that, according to my officemate who just got an IBM 770 and the
32bit version of the card, Linux does not support that card. I don't
know if that's because of some huge departure in terms of interface to
the ethernet, or just because its Cardbus and they don't have the stuff
to do that yet.
