Matrox NS-FNIC/4 Multiport ethernet cards

Hi Kim.

I can offer you the Matrox NS-FNIC/4 multiport NIC.  This card has 4 ports
of 10/100 Base Tx each.

We have drivers for Linux and they are actually included as part of Kernel
2.2.16.  That driver will support 2 cards (8 ports) but the official Linux
Maintainer has told us that the new driver he will include in Kernel 2.4
will support more and will also offer port aggregation...

The card is based on the Intel 82559ER controller.  A very low power
consumption, cool running, high performance chip.

See:  http://www.matrox.com/netweb/products/nsfnic4.htm

Please feel free to contact me at the Sales number below or Maya Theodory
of Matrox Networks Customer Service.
