	We use the KNE100TX for all 100mbit ether around here.  As of the
last shipment of cards (received about 3 days ago) the cards are in a new
box, but direct inspection shows that other than some minor revs they are
the same (still use the DEC chip, just a slightly diff physical layout).

	As folks might have suspected, not much survives except roaches,
	and they don't carry large enough packets fast enough...
