Well, it looks like I've actually got a VIP2(-40?) and an FEIP, without
modules. I wasn't sure what they were, and they have no modules in
them. So, I want some PA-FE-TX's I guess? Are those the same between
FEIP and the VIP2's?

RP+SSP I think, but I haven't looked closely at all of the 7000s yet.
All I want (right now) is something that'll let me connect FDDI and ATM
nets to my ethernet network, and work better than (read: at all) when I
tried to shove a DEFPA in a Linux box and use it as router. I never
figured I'd see a K7 box with that high of CPU load, only routing the
small number of packets that actually got through.
