Which 1000baseT cards work best under OpenBSD 2.9/3.0 ?
(The SysKonnect "bge" or "sk" ?)

We want to hookup our internal LAN with our Cisco 3550-12T,
through an OpenBSD based firewall with 2x 1000baseT, which
will be connected to a 3524XL. All desktop machines will be 
connected at 100mbit to this switch. What throughput can we 
expect with the openbsdfw, and what hardware is recommended 
for this (now a PII-400/64Mb). Can it do a full 100mbit stream 
without falling over ?
