This is the "pc" version, but I doubt there is any real difference
(other than possibly an openfirmware rom on the mac card) between
the mac/pc and pc-only versions.

The base gsip driver is in -current now, and performs quite well on
a 100base network (~90Mb/s in both directions).  I don't have a copper
Gig-E switch to test 1000base with; I have a Compaq 5450, but the two
Gig-E interfaces on it are fiber... someone could send me a copper Gig-E
switch if they want :-)

Heh :-)  I'll try and extract some out of the guy who sent me the
card when I see him at the IETF in London in a couple of months :-)
