Re: [vox-tech] tulip.c and DEC nic's

I concur, the linksys is a hard card to configure.  I suggest getting D-link
DFE-530tx+ 10/100, it is recognized during the check for new hardware (and its
cheap $35).  I've been able to find them at Computer Renaissance and Best Buy
(one time I went to Best Buy and they had the cards mismarked at $5, ironically
they were sold out).

Also the NetGear FA310 is good and is recognized (but its hard to find), the
FA311 is not recognized (and the support pages give the wrong files to compile
the driver, you need to request them from support (or I have them)).
