    Best Gigabit Ethernet PCI card for Linux?


    I haven't bought the Gigabit Ethernet PCI (CAT 5) card yet and would like to know which one has the best linux support/robustness/ease to install. I run SuSE 10.1 (not that it matters for the NIC). I've scoured this forum and most posts are about trying to get their card WORKING so I'm a little nervous on which to buy. Money isn't a real issue I do notice the cards range from $15 - $100, not sure what you gain with the $100 one.

    Thx.

    Thanks jweekley1. That site's search doesn't work too well, but a google "site:" search does(;. I didn't find what I was looking for in that forum so I just went ahead and bought a Linksys EG1032v3 and it worked (plug and play) out of the box! Here's the post:http://www.linuxquestions.org/hcl/sh...t=3237&cat=144
