???  You can buy a 3Com Fast EtherLink 10/100 PCI NM at CDW
(http://www.cdw.com/shop/products/default.asp?EDC=107719) for $57.22 and
it'll ship today.  I bought one there a few weeks ago.  Two weeks ago
I got a bunch of desktop quotes from Compaq, IBM and HP for a client, and
3Com NIC was an upgrade option on several models.

We too have had good luck with 3Com NICs.  We often use Netgear NICs in PC
workstations, but 3Com for servers.
