Now I wondered where that post went
No, all is fine ... OpenBSD box is cooking and I am steaming into pf.conf via rc(8) etc atm.
D-Link DSL 300T works ok
Had a problem with the D-Link card in one PCI slot. Swapped in SMC EZ Fast Realtek 8139 and that also a problem in same slot.
Moved the SMC card to another slot and all was fine. May post dmesg sometime soon. Suspect IRQ conflict (resolve in BIOS?)
but haven't checked yet.
D-Link 300T set up to those cards worked ok.
DLink 528TX NIC works under SuSE and XP ok.
