The PCI 3x5x9 and 3x9xx cards should work fine on the Alpha if
you're running -current. I'd not really thought about what was
involved in getting the 3c509 working, but if ISA support `just
works' in general, the 3c509 should be pretty easy to get working.
I've actually got an AXPpci33 motherboard and a 3c509, so I'll put
this on my list of Things To Try when I get the time to take that
motherboard out and get it up and running.
