I came across this list of cards from the intel site. I am still
rather a noob when it comes to *nix. By chipset and therefore device,
would it safe to assume that all of these cards are supported in
FreeBSD 4.11-Release ?? I realize most of these are not gigabit cards,
but since I am trying to compile a list of compatible, why not include
these on another list.
