I got a Genuis NE2000III card from the local Compu'whore in Dundalk and she
had no problem under RH4.1 and 5.
It cost me the guts of £15 and the amazing thing was that it had actual
Linux install instructions/troubleshooting insert.
Don't see 3Com or Intel doing that!

On the other side of things, I dropped into Compustore on Stephen's Green
in Dublin last week, on the way back from the dentist, and had a very
unsatisfactory shop experience:
me: do you have any recent Linux distros? (to save the ftp'ing ;)
me: do you have *any* Linux distros?
me: any idea what chipset these dodgy-looking ethernet cards use?
This went on for a while regarding various bits of hardware, software etc.
Very crap. I hope their bigger stores have a bit more clue than that one.
But that raises the question -- there have been a few dodgy-looking really
cheap ethernet cards around, made by Trust, Genius and the usual suspects.
Has anyone here tried them under Linux? Are they Winethernet cards ;) or
just cheapie NE2000 clones that'll work fine?
