The boggling part of that is.. it worked (more or less) fine with Linux. Occasionally
slow-down on write, but other than that it was quite speedy, for reading, I couldn't
usually tell the difference between local and nfs.

Should be, worked fine before, different machine, same card same cables, etc..

Tried it, speed was about what I expected ~7mb / sec over NFS. (Of course..
this right away, I don't know if it would degrade over time)
Someone suggested changing the duplex settings on the other side, I know
it's running full duplex on DragonFlyBSD, but.. I don't know how to even
find out linux side. I'll have to research that I guess.
Regarding NFS lockups, I can change them to be TCP, I've tried both no
The lights show 100mbs if that means anything. :-)
