Linux just might support that NIC. I do know that many 3Com cards as well as many other off brands are supported, you might have to get an updated kernel. My favorite is the 3c905 PCI card. To this day, I've never had a problem with this card on Linux. You might even try the Intel Ether Express Pro or a generic NE2000 clone card.

If you've installed the kernel source, you might try looking under /usr/src/linux/drivers/net and see if one of the 3cxxx cards supports the one in question. Many 3com cards share the same interface specs which makes it possible for one driver to support many cards.

Hope this helps...

: Hello :)

: I recently purchased a 3c450(3Com) in haste. According to all the documentation i've come across, it's only supported platforms are Win9.x...I'd like an opinion as to which NIC (preferably 3com) i should purchase, within a 125$(Canadian dollars..which is approx. 250 American ;) price range....Support for Linux (RedHat 6.x) is a must.....Then again, if someone knows of linux drivers for the 3c450, that would work just as well...

: Tia,
