HANDS-DOWN: Intel... never had nor used a better supported, more stable nor 
higher performing card than intel. Stick to the EtherExpress Pro lines, ie 
EtherExpress Pro 100/B PCI card for 10/100 - supported by almost any O/S right 
out of the box - even Win95 doesn't need a driver for it, I have suse/amd64 here 
using 4 of them in a box - works great :)
