SubjectRe: Best gigabit card for linux
Hi,

I ordered 2 NSC-based giga ethernet cards (copper) and I was able to
get 54.4 Megabytes/s sustained (between an amd athlon 1200 MHz and an
athlon 1000 MHz) on kernel v2.4.5.

Since these card cost $45 each, i HIGHLY recommend them. The actualy
manufacturer is a company called Cameo in Taiwan.
