Where can I get an SE PDS ethernet card for a Mac SE?

Can I install the card myself, and how?

What version of MacOS do I need to be running, and do I need any other software (beyond what is included with the OS) to connect to the network?

Finally, what do I need to know about the network to be sure that this will work?

There are (or were) two ways of getting an SE onto ETHERNET.  ASANTE made an internal board that provided an ethernet port on the back of the unit.  They also made a SCSI based unit called an EN/SC that worked with many MAC models that provided an ethernet port via the SCSI port.  A bit clumsy but workable.  I've seen these on "junk tables" and other salvage outlets.  You might still find one in stock at a hardcore Mac retailer or mail-order house.

Thank you for the response.  The information is helpful, but I would also like the last segment of my question answered. Namely, would my newly enhanced SE be able to connect to any network that a new iMac could?  If not, what questions can I ask of my network administrator to find out if it would work (before I buy anything).  Thanks, bdemarest

MacOS supports both "EtherTalk" (which is AppleTalk over Ethernet) and TCP/IP over Ethernet.  Your SE will be able to do anything on the network that an iMac would, albeit it would be a lot slower.
