Subject: SMC ISA or NE-2000 clone on an AXPpci33 machine: does this work?

I'm considering buying an AXPpci33 board being offered right now,
but the only two networking cards I've got laying around right now is
an SMC ISA card that I _think_ is a NE-2000 clone, and a card that
I know is an NE-2000 clone. Since part of the goal of this motherboard
is cost-containment, simply buying a new network card is out. Does
anyone know if an NE-2000 card will work now under NetBSD/alpha?
(If the answer is "port the driver", that's fine too, but that'll
have to happen later.)

Also, the board being offered is the NT board, so it only has the
AT keyboard plug. Does NetBSD/alpha support serial or Logitech
bus mice? I've seen a couple of mentions of serial mice in the list
archive, but nothing definitive, and not a peep about bus mice.

I've set the reply-to to come back to me, and I'll summarize all
responses for the sake of the list.

Thanks in advance,
