My reading of the Internet Oracle was different - I thought I saw
(although I can't confirm now) that people were happily using the Belkin
F5U508 USB2.0/Firewire card was supported in Solaris/sparc. Certainly
it's on my list of PCI cards to grab for my E-250.

You can get 802.11b<->ethernet bridges for $40-50 last I checked...
screw the PCI cards.

Yep, been eyeing that myself, if I want better performance than the
above-mentioned Firewire card can provide.
