Well, they're in stable...I had a look for mii-tool as well but that doesn't
seem to exist on debian/sparc.

Nope, definitely SCSI. Copying a single large file over from the SS5 to the
XP box and looking at the network traffic in task manager shows an almost
perfectly flat line at 10% of the 100Mb/s adapter's available bandwidth,
that's what made me think it was a negotiation problem.
