Matt Thomas and I have a 4 port board in an AlphaStation 200, and it
worked great.  relevant dmesg bits:

de0 at pci0 dev 11 function 0
de0: interrupting at isa irq 5
de0: DEC 21040 [10Mb/s] pass 2.4
de0: address 00:00:f8:23:47:17


ppb0 at pci0 dev 13 function 0: Digital Equipment DECchip 21050
PCI-PCI Bridge (rev. 0x01)

de1 at pci1 dev 4 function 0
de1: interrupting at isa irq 15

de2: DEC 21040 [10Mb/s] pass 2.3
de2: address 08:00:2b:e4:17:48
de3 at pci1 dev 6 function 0
de3: interrupting at isa irq 5
de3: DEC 21040 [10Mb/s] pass 2.3
de3: address 08:00:2b:e4:17:45
de4 at pci1 dev 7 function 0
de4: interrupting at isa irq 15
de4: DEC 21040 [10Mb/s] pass 2.3
de4: address 08:00:2b:e4:17:47

Obviously it's an old board (i don't know what kind, but i infer 'old'
from the presence of only the 10Mb/s chips 8-), but works quite nicely
for network sniffing.
