: The cats, dnard, ofw and ebsa are really more a footbridge/squoia or
: equivalent and use all pheriphals from isa/pci (AFAIK) and are thus very
: thin to be a seperate port.

Well, the DNARD is a wee bit different from the CATS or EBSA; the latter
two don't use OpenFirmware (and instead have direct PCI/ISA attachments).

The DNARD uses the `ofisa' method of identifying and attaching ISA devices,
while the CATS/EBSA use the footbridge base bus.
