        Other than the connectors being different, I don't know how
different electrically they are. The AAUI, as used on the PM 6100
and others, is about half the size of the standard AUI connector, as
found on such network cards as the 3COM Etherlink series. My guess
is that they probably aren't compatible though. I've got a couple of
the AAUI pigtails, as well as a David Expressnet box that goes from
the standard AUI to 10base-T. For flexibility, I actually like the
AAUI design.
