You could've replied to me in private Email, instead of sending it to
the list....

I'm not sure. I'm going to refer you to MY web page :-)

and then click on "free software".

Specialix is considering having me do all specialix cards. However, as
EISA is getting outdated, I don't expect them to spend money on
developing drivers for EISA cards. However, it might be that the Eisa
SI cards are sufficiently compatible to other cards that the driver
can easily be ported. I'll try to assist in getting them ported if
that's the case...
