yes they do... i have the drivers for the card installed and i get the
messages on the console saying when the cards get a link and what speed link
they auto-negotated to. ifconfig's output matches what you would expect with
a working card. ipfilter also bind's it's self to all 8 of the extra
adapters at boot.

   This may be a dumb question...but...does the OS see the interfaces,
i.e. do they show up in the output from "ifconfig -a"?
