    I have came across a Prototype Apple PCI Card (from 1997) this Card has Firewire 200 (2 ports), Coax (2 ports), and S-Video(1 port)... I have surmised that since this card is from 1997 (ie Steves year) that when Steve came back and terminated lots of products (like the Newtons). I know I have heard of firewire 400 and 800. I have been able to use this card and it works fine (at least the firewire) I looked up the #(820-0872 and AP2819-06) and found nothing about it... This card also has some sort of internal Hd/or video connector... Has any one heard of this?

    heh... if that's the same card i'm thinking of, it's not quite that rare... other world computing had a bundle of those that they were trying to sell off. at least 100 of them.

    here... they've been selling these for a while now, and they're just now saying they're getting low. 5 bucks a pop.

    <edit>

    if there dates are right on the xlr8yourmac article about it, they've been selling these for at least a year now, if not more. sounds about right.
