The tlan is available in both a 10MBs and 10/100mbps versions and I
suspect that the 5133 would have 10/100 (based on quick googling).  I
will keep my eye out for a 5133, the trouble with onboard NICs is that
they are difficult to obtain.  No one wants to ship me a PC.

The tlan driver should support a number of different cards.  When I
compile from source for a floppy I simply make bin/tlan.fd0 as it will
support all the tlans.  If I remember correctly, choosing any tlan
driver with a floppy format from romomatic should work too.

If you have time to trouble shoot some time let me know.
