card & getting gigabit speeds.

The transfert speed with a RTL8139 or the 3COM card but it was between 5 - 6 Mb/s.
We can't reach gigabit speeds but it's a nice improvement. (The 8169 can't easily reach gigabit speeds on other OS)

Switch off the one you don't want to use from within each OS (in AmigaOS it's easy; there's no driver on your system).

Yes, of course. It has been a very difficult driver to write.
