APA and Network cards for HP9000 servers

Dear Experts,

I was going through some doc for APA (url - http://www.hp.com/products1/serverconnectivity/adapters/apa_prodbrief.html)
which mentions support for some network adaptors. Does it mean that only these adaptors will be supported ?
Can APA support
AB290A - PCI-X dual port U320 SCSI and dual port 1000Base-T adapter (url - http://www.hp.com/products1/serverconnectivity/storagesnf2/U320/specifications.html)
If not why not ? Is there any specific reason why any HP supplied network interface card cannot be used in APA ?

Regards,
Ninad

This document says YES:

"... AB290A ... Supports HP Serviceguard for the whole card and Auto-Port Aggregation (APA) for high availability of the 1000Base-T ports."

Hope this helps!
