> I just purchased an Intel PRO/1000MT Desktop Adapter, the PLWA8391MT. In the em(4) man page, the PLWA8390MT is supported, but I was wondering if this model will work as well?
we should support about all intel GigE's out there. some very new ones
_might_ be missing again but i doubt it, and if, adding support should
be rather easy.
if i would get intel's naming scheme we could have more accurate info
in the manpage; apparently just everything that is GigE copper seels as
Pro/1000 MT, despite intel using about 10 (slightly) different chips
and if you already have the card, like, d'uh, put it into some mobo and
boot bsd.rd or somesuch to check

Unix is very simple, but it takes a genius to understand the simplicity.
