Yes, it is a 200, actually, it is a PCMPC200 version 2.  (The version number
is down by the serial number though, not by the model number).  I'm not
really able to tell if I'm getting lots of errors with the SS card, but
I prefer it to the LinkSys card since the SS card doesn't have a dongle
and the dongle for the LinkSys card has a short in it. :)

The only other cardbus NIC I have is a D-Link DFE-690TXD which uses a RealTek
chip.  It doesn't use a dongle, but it does periodically lock up the system.
Ejecting the card unfreezes the system and I can insert it again, re-DHCP
and everything is ok.  A bit annoying though. :)
