OK, given that it appears my on-board NIC doesn't do GigE, I'm looking online
at NewEgg and found a Rosewill 10/100/1000 PCI NIC for $13. Now reading the
reviews, it appears that this card uses a RealTek chipset, OTOH, it is
supported under Linux. There were a couple instances of bad NICs out of the
box, but for the most part, they seemed to work with no problems.
Other than a general dislike of RealTek, anyone know any reason why this
wouldn't be a good NIC?
