SubjectRe: Cheap network for two hosts ?
Hi there.

I don't know what you call "Slightly more expensive", but I bought a
box containing a dozen old NE2000 clone cards for a fiver. So far,
I've used five of them, and sold a further four for £3 each, and by my
arithmetic, I don't think I could have done any better...

Best wishes from Riley.
