	For example, I have:

ep2 at 0x320-0x32f irq 11 on isa
ep2: aui/bnc/utp[*UTP*] address ....

	That means I have the three connectors in my card (aui/bnc/utp) but I
have configured in the EEPROM the UTP connector.

	Remember you have to use the link2 option while ifconfig 'ing if you
want to use the UTP or AUI connectors.
