100Mb cards.  I see about a 100k/s increase when using the be in 100 as
opposed to 10 mode (IIRC I got about 820k/s via 10 meg, and about 
930k/s on 100 meg - as reported by ttcp, at least).  That's on a switched
network, too...  Not that I'm complaining about having an extra 100k/s to  
my SS5, but the grass is always greener on the other side of the MII ;-)
