Right. The EISA slot can function as a normal ISA slot, so you can stick any
old ISA nic into it. The question then is what cards are supported by HP,

As my EISA card is a CDDI-card (pretty useless Copper Distributed Digital
Interface - lowtech fddi afaik), I need my aui-card myself. But if anybody
wants some older 'DDI-technology, I'll donate my CDDI-card to whoever
swaps his AUI-card with your FDDI-card.
I guess I'm somewhat less helpfull now than I thought I was, but still. ;-)
