I have honestly not tried them in a SPARC running anything but Linux
or Solaris. They won't fit in my convenient PCI Sun, and the AXmp is 
a bit big to get out quite yet. I plan to at some point, but I'd rather
use an Osicom or two if I can.

The Znyx cards should look just like any other DEC Tulip interface. 
You won't get the RAIN support from it, but it should look like the
generic 2114x-yy Ethernets.
