Compaq EISA Netflex-2 ENET/TR adapter?

Rob, I own one of these things. It CANNOT speak both. Ethernet was achieved
through setting a jumper/switch (different on model) and making sure the
circuit block for Token Ring was not installed. Token Ring gets enabled
(and Ethernet disabled) via putting in the circuit block and setting the
switch/jumper. Compaq does have drivers for these under ProLiant 2000
Server on their site and such if you look for drivers by system model. I
believe it was Compaq supported for Novell 3.x and OS/2 and I think DOS. I
do know various flavors of Linux support it too. It was Compaq's way of
creating flexibility and being cheap at the same time (which is something
you never do with a server).
