On section of LAN adapters. I think you should include the very good ENOJ converged adapters as suitable LAN cards. Now they are hidden under Fibre Channel over Ethernet. Something that might confuse readers that are considering a network card with future SR_IOV support.
Secondly: p64(pdf)"....They are high-performance Converged NetworkAdapters (CNAs) using SR optics. "
Then you list adapters which has SR, Active SFP and even LR optics! Please highlight these adapters are perfect as network only

on p58(PDF) it is mentioned:
"Slot 7 (P1-C10) comes with the PCIe2 LP 4-port 1 Gb Ethernet Adapter(#5260) installed. If this slot is needed, the adapter must be moved to another suitable slot or replaced by another Ethernet adapter."
1. Is this supported? 2. What is the process from ordering perspective?
