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?
