Ahh.. good to hear.  Looks like you have the exact same ioplanar as the one in
the 7006. (slot 15 == f6fe)  Lucky you, as they are a bit of a pain to figure

Now all that leaves is the nasty little problem of MCA bus_dma code to get the
scsi/ethernet working.  I haven't had much time to play with it recently, due
to my work on ofppc.  I hope to get back to it soon though.  We do have drivers
in-tree for those devices, they just need a bit of mca glue code, and probably
a dma back end. (I don't think either device can do any kind of PIO)

If anyone else is interested in trying, I will offer what assistance I can.
