On NetBSD 1.6, this card/server combination is much cuter:

*  On old 600MHz Dell it crashes the system if you ctl-alt-BS
*  On a new SIS based motherboard it (no joke):
   -  Starts printing some garbage on the USB HP Deskjet
   -  Turns the power off on the computer.

This last item makes it a bit difficult to debug, although it
increases stability to infinity and reduces usability to zero :-)
