Donald Becker, others,

Could you please clarify the state of things regarding 3Com release of GPLed
drivers, are you planning to sync with them or is this going to be 2
separate competitive drivers?

On 3Com's web site it says:

        Note: The 3C59x, 3C900 and 3C905 series NICs are supported by Donald
        Becker's driver. This driver can be obtained at the below URL: 

What does that mean?  Did they use any of your code?
