Well, I've always installed an Ethernet interface in my Macs by putting the
card inside the case and turning it on.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. My 7300 Power Mac speaks TCP/IP just
fine, and it has a regular 10baseT Ethernet port. It cooperates just fine
in a mixed network.

Plus, there are *many* Ethernet-capable Macs, even if it's just an AAUI
that needs a transceiver.

If you mean *AppleTalk* issues, many NT servers speak AppleTalk too, and OS
X.1 mounts NT shares natively as well as NFS, AppleTalk-over-IP and regular
classic AppleTalk.
