I tried this with the DS20 here (smp) and it works. then again, I did find that
if you have two ethernet cards in the box they cannot be in ajoining PCI slots
(very odd, not sure whats going on there), also the end slot (6) seems to be odd
as it's one of these ISA/PCI slots though I'm unsure if both connectors are
electrically tied or seperate
