Could you recommend PCI devices for the clueless geeks like me? And
which is that pc-card device you mentioned?

I don't realy need accelerated crypto, but I'm curious how it works
on sparc64 (if it works there, it'll probably work everywhere).

And I'd like to see a sparc station 2 (sparc v7 w/o hardware
multiply/division) use a pc-card crypto accelerator. Assuming there are
no sbus crypto accelerator card available.
