Are there any hopes of drivers for this?  

Last I recall (which was a long time ago, admittedly) Xircom was the sort 
of place that balked at giving out programming docs without NDA.  In addition
to this card (which came from the WinNT NIC test environment at work), I've
got access to a few other Xircom cards (both 16-bit and cardbus, I thing).

I'd be happy to help test stuff out, or may even attempt to hack together
a driver if I could get docs without an NDA (and some more spare time 8-).
