Sorry about the confusion...the "buggy" 3C905C never made it to market - the affected ones were protoype boards, and the bug was fixed before it made production and shipment to normal distibution channels. Any commercially available 3C905C should be just fine.

I always wondered what was going on with that so called "8K MII Bug". I guess the question I still have is, how can I identify a card that doesn't have the undesirable behavior? From what you say, the "later rev" 3C905Cs don't have it. Is the PCI signature different for these cards? Is there any way programmatically I can determine whether I have a 3C905C that doesn't require the Etherboot workaround? I ask because as we edit the 3C905.txt file to help new users of Etherboot, it might be useful to say that "if you have a Rev X 3C905C or later, you don't need to do the floppy disk magic described below" Thanks for your help, Regards, Marty --- Name: Martin D.
