If I'm not mistaken there is another FastE choice for the I2 that is
much faster than the 3com EISA card. I can't seem to jog the name from
my head though.
There are ways to get faster networking and disks into the I2. For
instance, there are UW SCSI cards, FC-AL cards, FDDI cards, and HiPPi
cards. All but the FDDI cards tend to be hard to find though.
