Two Gigabit ethernet questions....

Did anybody ever make a Gigabit ethernet SBus card that ran across  
twisted pair?
I've done some Googling and see ones that look like fiber based, but  
haven't seen any that look like they support twisted pair... (I've got  
a couple SS10's and was wondering if there is anyway to get them  
talking Gigabit...
(I don't have fiber, just the twisted pair..)

Second, if I were looking for some relatively inexpensive Gigabit  
cards for my Sun 420R/220R, what card should I be looking for?  I'm  
looking for the same as above, twisted pair based, and only need a  
single interface for each machine.  It looks like the Sun GigaSwith  
cards might be the right ones... I see some on EPay that look pretty  
inexpensive (pulls from Ultra 10 boxes).  If anybody on the list has  
any they're willing to part with, let me know...
Otherwise I'll probably go the EPay route.
