Choosing a Linux NIC

Interesting summary of what to look for in a linux NIC beyond the price is here. I wish I’d looked at that earlier. I’m currently installing Mandrake 9.1 on my sister’s PC. Because her CD drive wouldn’t read the Mandrake iso’s I’d burned, I ended up having to do a net install from my PC to hers. So far, its taken 10 hours to do the install.
