Beware: the BocaLan PCI cards have a design flaw which can cause big
problems as well.  The Allied Telesyn PCI card uses the same chip but is
unaffected.  I'd also _highly_ recommend the DEC PCI cards, and also
the Kingston PCI cards.  The Kingston cards use the DEC ethernet chip,
work with the DE4X5 driver, and cost $60-$70.  Not bad for 1MB/sec
