    ArcNet is old. Almost nobody is using it anymore. I used it at my former
    job, since we used it as control network. A lot of companies still does

    Why does it depend on ISA || PCI ? People tend to forget the PCMCIA
    driver. And in principle you could enable the ArcNet framework without
    using any of the drivers in the kernel tree.
