because Intel have gone for NDA (non-disclosure
agreements) on the docs/manuals for the eepro
series nic controllers. That means the support
for the fxp driver is beginning to slip.

Basically, there are some new driver stuff out
there but the source code cannot be released
due to the Intel NDA. There's a heavy disscusion
going on at the mo re this on -hackers
