    Safest is the latter. The shared memory interface on the wd is full speed
    8 or 16bit (depending on card/jumpers) but I'm not clear about the NIC.
    Most of the performance hit is on the packet transfer which is private
    methods on this device so using 8390p won't make a big difference on this
    board anyway.
