SubjectRe: Gigabit Intel NIC? - Intel Gigabit Ethernet Pro/1000T
I know, jumping in at this late-stage is bad form... but if we're talking
about the Intel 82543GC Gigabit MAC, why doesn't someone just use the
FreeBSD if_wx.c driver as a starting point?

It took me a while to find, as they refer to it as the LIVENGOOD instead of
the 82543, but the PCI ProductID values seem to match...
