Strictly speaking, DOS is not limiting your signalling speed, but the
ISA bus could be. There was one, only one, 100Mbps ISA card I ever
ran across (by 3Com, but I can't remember the model number) - it had a
PCI Ethernet chip and ISA<->PCI bridge chip, giving it, essentially,
an onboard PCI bus. I considered supporting it with the GG2 Bus+, but
I couldn't find one at the time for less than a couple hundred bucks
and figured my customers wouldn't be able to, either.
Plenty of PCI 100Mbps cards, but I don't know how much DOS support
there is for those (packet drivers, etc).
