Heh.  Amusingly, I don't have 4.0B anymore, so I can't really check :-)

Though, the ISDN/Audio thing is a no-brainer -- it's the same hardware
as is already supported on the SPARC port .. just a different DMA engine.

It's also the same as on TC Alphas.

Floppy is a little harder...  Does anyone know what sort of floppy chip
they used?  I think the IOASIC has a DMA channel for it, right?
