I seem to vaguely remember something about avoiding Linksys cards
version 2 -- the LNE100TX I bought last month was last version 5.1, and
this is on the box. Version 2 was a much older (ca. 1999) version.
Also I prefer the Netgear FA311 over the FA312 --- I believe the FA312
has some "Wake-on-Lan" feature that I never use. Either card has network
drivers for Red Hat.
