Cheers for that - it looks rather nice.  Hope you don't mind if I ask a  
couple of questions.

Are there any issues with it being internal, as with winmodems?
Does it steal much cpu (I hope to put this in a P60)?

The PDF techspec says "standard ATM driver" - does this take much 
figuring out?  Is it a kernel configuration issue?

What spec PC do you have it in, and how many other NICs are there in it?  
Does it provide any other services?  How loaded does it get?
