Ah, well, I've never heard of that on the Mac side, but that may be the
case. From everything I've read, the PCI clock was independent of the
system bus clock, but nothing's to say that information wasn't wrong.
Can you point me to a source for more info?

Regardless, the fact remains that any PPC Mac has plenty of PCI
bandwidth for megabit Ethernet.
