No.  I was just trying to demonstrate that I had 3 of them in a system
with no trouble and that renegotiation after power-on didn't appear to be
a problem.  I assume the renegotiation was a driver issue.  Earlier
versions of the driver on earlier versions (DEC 21140) of the FA310TX
would not renegotiate for me after power-on.  If the card wasn't plugged
into our switch on bootup, I'd have to reboot to get it working.

If anyone knows of inexpensive multiport tulip cards, I'd like to know
about it.
