The 100 TX/2 is register incompatible with the Ultra 100. I have
-- unsucessfully -- tried getting documentation out of Promise on
that card, but finally decided to just skip it. I sold my
brand-new TX/2 and got myself the older, supported, card via ebay.
Archive has some discussion from my trials with the card,
including debug output on booting, AFAIR.
