The Graphics card I don't kow about, but the NIC is going to work just fine
The Chipset is the Realtek RTL8029 (Better known as ne2k-pci, either insmod
the relevant module or do a kernel re-compile, I've had one working now for
ages (£17 odd for a brand new supported NIC is good I figure)
Setting up the network, if you've got all the bits and cables etc, just
connect 'em all up, make sure all the machines are running the same network
protocol, and have different identities (if TCP/IP, all machines need to
have unique IP addresses) Once all that's set up they /can/ talk to each
other, next step is working out /how/ !
Good Luck :o)
