I'll jump in with a few nitpicks.  :-p

The correspondence between "DEC Tulip NIC chipset" and the dc(4)
driver in the cross-references is not clear.

The supported models are not sentences, and therefore should not end
with full-stops.

In the HISTORY section, you should say that the my driver *first*
appeared in FreeBSD 4.6.

The AUTHORS section could probably be better worded as "The my driver
was written by Myson Technologies."  If you (hmp) want to give
yourself credit for the manpage, that's acceptable here.

I'd also try to turn the BUGS section into a complete sentence.


PS.  Yes, I always sign my name in email as though it were a sentence.
So sue me.  :-)
