Probably not. Isn't that an obsolete card? (There's one in my junk-box, if I
remember correctly.....)

Obsolete!!!?????
It isn't the newest card around, but it is one of a few that has a combo
solution. The 3C900B is fairly new, at least that is what I thought.... !?

Never the less it is a common card, and I think that it would be nice if it
could be supported by QNX.

Oh, well. I have an "A" card here, and it's produced in 1996, so you're
right, it isn't that old, but I don't think it's very widely used (the 509s
however, are quite common), and I thought they would be out of production.
Besides, it was a pain to set up with Windows, but then what isn't? (+:

There are several other (cheap(er?)) 10Mb cards around, and I think QNX
would rather concentrate on supporting the newer, more interesting, 100Mb
cards. But don't let me speak for them. I won't totally abandon the idea
that QNX (and other users) has another opinion.
