Looking for driver for unknown 10/100 Mbit ethernet card (SMC FEAST)

Hi! Just new here and hoping anyone has a clue what driver I need for an unknown (to me) ethernet card. No brand is mentioned on the card. It's a 1996 NuBus 10/100 ethernet card and utilises a SMC 'FEAST' controller. Anyone who might be able to sort me out? Thanks in advance, kind regards, Jeroen.

SMC is just the manufacturer

SMC is just the manufacturer of the Ethernet chipset, not the whole card. A search for "NuBus BD-056" yielded this:

The second post indicates that Sonic Systems, at one point, made those cards -- or facsimilies of them -- and that their drivers should work. A page Google returned as a result for "Sonic Systems NuBus Fast Ethernet" was this one:

Good luck!
