Yeah, I eventually persuaded what must surely be the most tight-fisted bunch
in the country to buy a Cyclades card with 32 ports on it. A little excessive
for most people, I would imagine. It's a PCI card with what looks like a SCSI
2 socket, and two little pizzaboxes each with 16 ports. Cost over a grand, but
it works perfectly as far as I can tell.

If anybody comes up with a decent source of _cheap_ 4-port or 8-port cards,
preferably using only one IRQ, I'd be interested.
