Hello all,

Looking for a confirmation before I pull the trigger - my research has turned 
up that the RealTek RTL8169 Gigabit Ethernet cards work with Solaris 10 (but 
NOT OpenBoot PROM, so no boot on net)[0], and there is a retailer selling 
refurbs for $11.95 (with $1.95 S/H per networking order)[1] - anyone used 
these cards in their PCI UltraSPARC boxes (U5/10 and 30/60)?

before, never a problem, so a trusted vendor)
