    SubjectRe: PCI netcards that are good for Linux
    To  get the smc etherpower pci's to work in my machine (2.0.27) I had to
    get the newest tulip driver from:

    My question I guess would be if there are plans to merge the .73 driver
    into the kernel source tree. The one in 2.0.27 seems to be from the 1.2

    Performance wise I see 22.4 Mbps transfer rates between my pc and one of
    our sun ultra's...
