I have some DE500-something-or-other PCI ethernet cards that use
00-00-F8 so they are definitely pre-Cabletron and pre-HP and (IIRC)
pre-COMPAQ. Anyway, the DECservers followed some strange circuitous
route that took them to DNPG (and have now drifted off to
someone else). They did (I think) briefly live inside Cabletron, but
only while they were looking for somewhere to send them :-)
