Yeah, I've got some. Not sure what though, but you're
welcome to them. I think there are 2 (100MHz and
120MHz I think). You can have them both if you want
them. 1 used to be my own firewall.

It's a 24 port 10 Mb ethernet hub.

The ones with the arial things are 10Mb ISA 3Com
Etherlink cards, I gave Bobby some PCI 100Mb D-Link
cards also. Both work under Linux. The arial things
are BNC connectors for co-axial cable, you don't need
to worry about them these days, it's how things were
done in the dark ages.

You can collect or I'll bring them to a LUG meeting.
