    I wouldn't recommend the 10/100 adaptor, as it is likely to be a cardbus device, which won't work on the A1200. However I have a Toshiba branded Xircom 10-baseT (2) card (pce2-10bc) for which I intend to write
    drivers, if I can find time.
    Have you thought about swapping it for a different type of ethernet
    card? I'm sure a laptop-owning PC user would like to have 100base
    ethernet :)
