Never used either.  Can't comment.

Speculation: could the underlying Linux provide that?
If so, would configuration be setting a permission on

If it works, the RTL8139 will be in an NE2000 emulation 
mode ... if that exists.  Probably I'm dreaming.

With a PCI bus, a second Ethernet card shouldn't cause much
