My buddy and I used to work at Alteon with my buddy doing most of the original
NIC firmware coding.  I don't remember who did the SGI driver side coding.  
The linux driver was done by Jes Sorensen using our OpenDriver kit. Let me
know if we can help in any way.   Is the Origin an SGI machine?  If so, i do
recall we had to do some special casing to get the card to work correctly. 
This was 4 years ago ....
