Yeah, vmware uses lnc. The difference between le and lnc is not that one
is ISA and one is PCI, the lnc driver also supports ISA cards.

The le driver was written to support DEC cards based on 2 chipsets, just
one of which is lance based (I forget the other one). It should really
have the lance stuff ripped out, and then get newbussed to support the
other chipset.

I might do that sometime since I have the cards, but I'm busy until the
end of Oct.
