A good use for older Nubus machines would be as a
Internet (cable/dsl) router. Therefore it would be
helpful if support can be added for additional NICs. As
it currently stands support for the 8390 driver is
currently broken. Are there other NIC's avaialble that
we might be able to support? Can the 8390 driver be
fixed.

    8390 Driver has been fixed. Should support almost all PDS
    and Nubus cards based on the 8390 chip.

    SMC driver is currently being worked on. By Jan 04 it should
    support most PDS and CommSlot cards based on the
    SCM9xxx chipset as well as the 10/100 Asante Nubus card.

    I am also attempting to port the Sonic driver from m68k
    which should provide support for the PDS and CommSlot
    cards based on the Sonic chipset.
