Huh? Which SysKonnect card exactly, and which Tyan motherboard?
We run up to 4 SysKonnect 9843 fiber cards on Tyan 1867 and
2567 motherboards (ServerWorks HE and HE-SL chipsets), without
problems. Admittedly those are somewhat dated motherboards now,
and I wasn't paying attention to earlier mail in this thread, but
this blanket statement about incompatibility caught my attention.
