Lots. That was the normal mechanism for network attachment prior to the
NICs being added to the system board. And at that point, you had to
have 2 slots to allow for anything else if you were tied to a network,
and that was the only reasonable expansion mechanism. I've got
everything from 486 based to PIII 700 based machines in that
configuration. I'd say that they span about 3-4 years or more in age.
