I have a situation where I only have one PCI slot available. Currently, 
I'm using a Znyx card from a Nokia appliance. To my surprise, it is 
working... sort of. Things are fine, but once in a while I'm seeing 
"kernel: dc1: TX underrun -- increasing TX threshold" in the logs. Last 
night, it completely stopped accepting traffic.

Are you currently using a Phobos nic? Have you had any problems?
