Pentium hardware and 100 Mbps Ethernet

I'm looking for netperf measurements on Pentium hardware and 100 Mbps
Ethernet, because it should be possible to do some direct comparisons
of different stacks (e.g. FreeBSD TCP/IP, Linux TCP/IP, QNX TCP/IP),
but I can't find anything in the database. I've heard of figures
floating around (60 Mbps for FreeBSD - we've measured this anyway);
it would be nice to get some solid results.

We have a STREAMS TCP/IP stack on QNX, and the native QNX stack is BSD
based, and that would make a very interesting comparison...
