HImm.....i was thinking of a Card that would help with distributed.net. 
This hardware looks great for Encrypton....however it doesn't look that
great for cracking Rc5.....If i'm wrong please just tell me
otherwise....But a 386 at 25mgz isn't going to crack that many
keys....or is there a another card that i am compleatly missing? i guess
i wasn't clear in whati was asking for.......
