The replies I got were mixed.
"Sun4m machines require buffered ethernet cards."
"sbus cards are architecutre specific and can't be swapped between
"should be fine"
"IMHO they will."
The prospects did not look good but it did not seem to be certain so I tried
it. I managed to get the older card seated okay and it was recognized by the
4.1.4 OS . I could ping the card itself but no more than that. Very strange
behaviour I think. I have decided that it does not work.
Thanks for your help.
