Yeah, but it ought to be faster than 10baseT, right?  I don't expect 10
times as fast, but I do expect "faster."

The 3com EISA 100baseT card in my Indigo2, while it doesn't do real 100base
speeds, is still noticeably faster than the onboard 10base.  Not so with the
Challenge's vfe monster....

Maybe switching hubs will fix it.  It's hard to swap cables with one's
fingers crossed, though.
