I've got some FDDI concentrators and there's an FDDI ring port on my
switch (both DEChub 900ms modules).

And I've also got three CDDI PCI cards that I bought off e-Bay a long
time ago but never did anything with (at least I think they're still
around -- they should be over at a colleague's house now).

I'd love to have at least my server and build machine(s) on faster
network connections, and somehow I'd like this stuff to all come

I could trade the CDDI cards for FDDI cards (my servers are all in the
cabinet right next to the switch cabinet, so ~15' fibre patches would be
enough), or if I could find some ultra-cheap media converters.....
