Somebody reported long time ago that they do not work in Linux, so I 
wrote that into the Debian/mipsel install docs...
Maciej has done some work on the DEClance driver in the meantime, but
I know of nobody who has a real PMAD-AA to test it. The problem is,
that the chip (a LANCE) is the same, but the way it is connected to the
rest of the system seems to be different between a DECstation 5000/200
(AFAIK no working LANCE support in the current kernels), the rest
of the DECstation 5000 series and the PMAD-AA TurboChannel ethernet card.
If you have such a card, please test it and tell me the results, so that
I can update the install docs appropriately.
