Well, maybe trivial for you who do this for a living :-)

Sure, but I was looking for example at the Intel offerings which pair dual 
Xeon mainboards with 1U/2U cases that are certified to work together.

I know that this 32bit/33MHz card looks slow by today's standards, but I 
think that it can still provide lower latency than e1000 or tg3 -driven 
cards, so Id' like to continue to use them.

Many thanks for this address. I did try to use google before writting to 
the list, but I came with all sorts of shops, but nothing with good 
descriptions, which is what I needed most.
