Wow, I was using those cards back in the early 90's with coax 10BT.  I 
have a few laying around if anyone wants 'em.  I was just about to toss 
them out along with a bunch of old Adaptec and Buslogic VLB and ISA 
narrow SCSI cards from the same era.  My wife has become a lot less 
tolerant of my packrat ways with computer gear.  8-)
