Well, I stated earlier that the 3c905c doesn't appear to be supported by
Etherboot, as I tried this last week. After dropping in a 3c905, it worked
like a charm. FreeBSD has a driver and works with the C revision, so I'm
sure it wouldn't be too hard. I'm not sure about the -T??? stuff, I
thought that stuff was IO options and such. (ROM socket, etc)
