Etherexpress != Etherexpress PRO.
Etherexpress PRO != Etherexpress PRO10/100.
I dont know wether the old Etherexpress PRO (supported by the iy driver)
is the same as the Etherexpress PRO/10 ISA of their new marketing.
Frankly, I'll refuse to ever again buy Intel networking equipment. Its
impossible to get the necessary information for free, and its even impossible
to get a code number you could use to _buy_ it from a distributor, and
its also impossible to find out, without buying the boards and looking
whats on them, what chipset the boards use.
The iy driver is still not ready, because in 2 years now I wasnt able to
get full programming information for the i82595 chip, for the above
reasons. (e.g., multicast isnt supported, and interupts arent as
configurable as I expected them to be from the available information).
