I have the same card, and I expect it to work in an XT. I also have an earlier version of the card, from when that division was under WD, and that earlier version does work in an XT if the correct driver is used.

I don't have or tried the same card, but I have good experiences in XT's with WD/SMC 8003's and compatibles.

It's just Ethernet.

Early Ethernet cards could use BNC/Coax or D-shell/RJ-45 too, and eventually twisted pair connections on later cards. Even though those early connectors and hardware interfaces are the same as token-ring, the transfer protocoll differs.
