I know of systems on previous lists which are listed as Myrinet systems, 
but are actually only running Gbe. This might stem from the fact that some 
vendors would like to get as many system listed as possible. When they have 
benchmarked and submitted an N-node cluster with Myrinet, it is very 
tempting to submit another N-node cluster using the same node hardware;-).
