I have an 'sm' in a docking station for my old laptop. I'll try to test
it before the weekend. Or if you could provide a prebuilt kernel that
would help so I don't have to checkout 1.5B on it.
Any thoughts about an EISA frontend? I have a couple of the SMC 10/100
EISA cards. And old 486/66 EISA machines that might like 100Mbit/s. :)
