I'd love to hear if anyone's had success with this card and NetBSD
1.4.1. I've given up on it. I'd love to be able to use it, but tired
of playing with it and don't have the requisite knowledge to figure
out what's wrong with the driver.

I'd rather not have to switch one of my machines to NetBSD 1.3.2 or
FreeBSD to be able to use the Cyclades board, and would like to see
this board remain on the list of supported hardware, so if anyone out
there wants to try to get the Cyclades PCI driver in NetBSD 1.4.* to
work properly, I'd be happy to loan you the board and breakout box for
a month or so.
