I know that this card is not supported by NetBSD. But is it worth to put
time and sweat into writing a driver? i.e.: Can I suspect to get a
reasonible throughput (>>50MBit/s) on my DEC3000-600? Or should I not
think about driver writing and try to get a DEFTA, because the DEFZA is
slow, no doc available, to complex (SMT not in microcode)...?

p.s. I have already some FDDI stuff running like the DEFPA in my
PWS500au (Tru64), SPARC 5 (Slowlaris), the SGI Indigo2 R4k4 (IRIX) and
the 10BaseT switch with FDDI uplink. So everything is in place to get it
in use.
