You've probably long found a good card, but on the off chance someone else
here's looking, I've had great luck with a linksys etherfast 10/100 + 56k
modem.  It even says it supports Linux on the back of the box. :)  It's been
greally grat for me.  Don't know if they still make them, though -- I got it
quite a while ago.
