  Or, if you actually demand 100MBPS from your 100MBPS networking
technology, you can get GIO64 FDDI interfaces for Indigo2s pretty
cheap these days.  Grey Douglas' outfit (http://www.reputable.com) has
them for really nice prices.

  About the Phobos cards...is the only difference the PROMs?  If so,
why don't we get some and dupe 'em?
