The SBus FDDI cards which Sun sold (made by a 3rd party vendor whose name
I forgot) were slow as hell. I once tried one of them in my girlfriend's
SS20 (running Solaris 9) with a fast i386 system on the other site. I only
got about 1.1MByte/Sec (measured with "ttcp"). The machine can deliver
6MByte/Sec over the hme SBus card.

So I would waste too much thoughts on FDDI cards for SBus systems.
