840(????) chipsets, which r real bad)

i dunno!!, but we use dlink and dax 100mbps network cards, and they give
adequate performence for most ppl and are quite cheap..(these are also based
on realtek chipsets - rtl8139)... and we also use intel 100mbps cards on any
node where we need performence and on any server, and these cards are really
fast.... with these cards the file transfer speed gets affected by disk
access speed!!!!!
