I have some more or less working. It does not work if your motherboard
PCI setup lets it pick IRQ 9. I have one running at IRQ 12 and one
at IRQ 15. The receiving card seems to lock up under extremely
high load (300 Meg FTP's running at 30K/s) but can be revived by
removing/reloading the module. It is holding up OK in normal use
connecting an NT machine via samba and acting as a router to 10Bt
for a few other machines. If you follow the directions for building
the driver as a module you don't need the 'ether=' setup, you
have to 'insmod' it or set it up to load automatically.
