I tried it on several machines, an ASUSTek Duel P2 board..
Also a Siemens single proc machine.
Both failed.

Yet, I have others with the same "Rev" board at another company working
fine.. Although one card on one of the duel homed machines occasionally
"fails" with this broadcast problem.

Also, same rev board on my Alpha PC/SX 533 works most of the time..
sometimes when it boots up it fails in the same manner as the others.
