 I wondered the same thing a while back and learned that there
were such beasts. A supplier in Calgary Alberta responded
tongue-in-cheek "Sure, how many do you want". TMK there were a
fair number of mfgrs who made them. I've been meaning to put one
in my heavily-modified PC and when I sort out my card box will see
if I have a spare. I think the biggest problem with these old cards is
figuring out how to set the jumpers.
