Well, IIRC the 7170 is a dual-Port Intel-GigE-card, should be supported
by the em(4) driver.
I had some time ago the opportunity to play a short time with a Sun
V65x, with 2 of those cards (I think because Sun could/would not supply
us with additional NICs we bought 7170 from a HP supplier) equipped, and
FBSD 5.2.1 worked.
Are you just curious if they will work in a machnine that you want to
buy, or do you have real trouble in an existing setup?
