I have a SC-SATG11 in a 164lx.  This board has

	RealTek 8169S         Gigabit Ethernet
	Silicon Image 3512    2 SATA ports

When I added the board, the SRM firmware got very confused.  :-(
To this day the Ethernet is unusable.  I still need to try updating
the SRM firmware to the latest bits.

The SiI3512 works fine.  The max throughput is "only" about 37 MB/s with
one drive, 40 MB/s with both drives, but no problems.

At the time, this was the only Ethernet/SATA combo board I could find.
(maybe it still is?)

Does anyone else have a SC-SATG11 in an Alpha?  Or a RealTek 8169S
on a different board in a Alpha?
