It's my own code. I've done it to learn about embedding TCP/IP and
while what Adam has done with uIP and Contiki is amazing, I would
have learn't nothing from just running a port of it.

It should, I have SCSI, LPT: & COM: port and VGA cards, all 8 bit,
to try out sometime.

I don't want to sell it and there is already a C64 ethernet cart.
Still I do have a few C64s as well as the VIC.

The 3C509 doesn't, the 3C509B and above do.

Compared to the Ne2000 type the 3Com cards are very easy to
program .... Once you manage to pry the datasheet out from the
fingers of 3Com. 8^)=
