I seem to recall at one time reading that the 3C905B PCI card would work
under AIX. Do you know this to be true?  Our 7043-140 will only be in
production for another year; it primarily runs our Progress database used to
manage student and PEIMS information. The company who makes the software is
requiring us to switch to a Terminal Server next spring *shrug*. Well, at
least I'll get a free RS/6000 out of the deal.
