2nd NIC for the core?
« on: November 15, 2008, 08:04:26 am »
I'm thinking of getting this for a second NIC in my core.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106121

Are there certain chipsets I should limit myself to when buying  a NIC for linuxmce?  Will this one work?

Thanks

drjenk.

Pretty much any nic that is supported out of the box by Linux 2.6.22 kernel will work.
If I would recommend a card, by a Intel PCI or PCIe gigabit card.
