3Com 3C985 series is supported by the AceNIC driver. The Intel cards
are only supported by an Intel provided driver which has license and
patent issues afaik.

AceNIC basically covers the following cards: Alteon AceNIC, 3Com
3C985(B), NetGear GA620(T) and some cards from Farallon, DEC, HP & SGI
which I do not remember the model numbers of.
