I have those 4 port cards(quiet a few i may add and used in all my
experiments on NAPI with 10/100 etc for the last few eons) and they work
just fine with standard linux driver on my 32 bit hardware - not sure
about 64 bit.
There is one subtle difference. They use SYM PHY.
Donald Beckers drivers had this right - the current tulip driver still
has it wrong. I attempted to incorporate Donalds fixes a while back:
In my experience i have found even with current tulip driver no issues
unless you start doing things like 10Mbps half-duplex. I.e you dont need
the SYM PHY support.
