Also there are some with rl.  Those are add-on boards so they could be changed, but would require extensive effort as the machines are about a 4 hour drive from here and would require reconfiguration (an error prone process when you are tired).

bge is gigabit (I believe it actually stands for Broadcom Gigabit 
Ethernet) and thus wont be covered, as its only the 10/100 devices being 
propsed for removal. I too have a lot of machines with bge onboard, 
though we only use them on 100 meg ether in the main.
