Great. Can I be an early tester? :-). I was acutally thinking of the
cheap D-link/Linksys 10/100 cards at Fry's. apparently they're PCMCIA
10/100 ne2000-alikes, not CardBus. They almost work but our ne2k
driver cant find the MAC address...

Kewl. Last I looked some patches to the fxp code were needed; are
those in-tree now? The Megahertz 10/100+V.90 cards work too, right?
How about the no-dongle (patented) Xircoms? The lab here has a stash
of linksys 10Mbit cards with busted dongles. The no-dongle is
tempting, and the Xircoms work great with Linux...
