The original question was:
> I'm looking for information on 155Mbps ATM S-Bus boards which offer the
> option of multiple LANE interfaces per physical board.
> The SunATM 2.0 board only offers 1 LANE interface, right?

The answer is:
Yes, the SunATM 2.0 155Mbps board does NOT allow multiple LANE interfaces,
even with the 2.1 driver.
Suggestions were: Adaptec and Fore and possibly other vendors.
