They're all fiber on paper.  I'm going to try using a third-party TX 
GBIC.  I'll let you know if it works.

Anyway, if it doesn't work, one could always use media converters.  It's 
another performance hit, but still faster than 100Mbps ethernet.  In my 
case, the other option would be to put fiber cards in my machines.
