The 3com 905 series or the Intel eepro100 cards will give you a reliable 
link. I never put cheap network cards in servers. Call me paranoid. I only 
put those realtek cards in home grown desktop PC's

Both the Intel en 3Com cards perform well under Linux.


It might just be your lucky day, if you only knew.
