if you don't mind the slow down to 2megs and its only a point2point link,
the older wavelan full-length ISA cards look, feel and act like boring
ethernet cards to Linux, and yes, I can attest that they do support
bridging - well, they certainly passed IPX and Netbuei between the two

But, enabling bridging broke other things (such as being able to ping a PPP
modem link, directly connected on one of the end points) so we swapped to
an IPX tunnel and Netbuei over IP.
