You'll need one or more PMAD-A TurboChannel ethernet cards.  There'll
be three turbochannel slots with cover plates on the back of the box,
labelled "0", "1" and "2".  One of these will be used if you have a
graphics card of some sort.  You can plug as many of these in until the
box fills up.  They will appear to NetBSD as le1, le2, ... with le1
being in the lowest numbered TC slot and so on.

Feel free to ask any more questions!
