Ok - I should have said "configured for 16-bit" - I'm sure that some of
my network card will operate in 8-bit- I just have to figure out which
ones, find the docs and/or configuration utility, finf the 8-bit client
etc. etc. ... Doable - just more work than I'd like - thanks to all for
all the card suggestions.
