60 Mbyte/sec is close enough to half the bandwidth of the PCI bus for me
to ask: are you sure that the bottleneck is the Ethernet segment? If
your Ethernet port and your disk controller contend for bandwidth on the
same PCI bus then that might explain the number. Note also that in this
case the second GE won't help.
