My question is, is there any difference in the Intel PWLA8494MT part that apparently was pulled from this Sun system and the same Intel PWLA8494MT that is compatible with Windows? I can't seem to find anything that speaks of these differences, but I'm still not sure whether I should bid on this, because this will be going into a Windows Server 2008 box.
That's part of the problem I'm running into here. I know the drivers are available for my OS, but in the same drivers list I do not see the drivers available for Sun. I would think that if this were pulled from a Sun, I would see these drivers in the list too. You know what I mean? So this causes some doubt in my mind that there is SOMETHING different about the card, and there is some variation in the hardware specific to Sun.
Can anyone else possibly shine some light? I know absolutely nothing about Sun, and don't know if Intel would build a model specific to only Sun. If not, then I believe it's the same card, but I certainly don't want to get stuck with something that is not going to work due to my ignorance.
