Yes, the 570TX (I think it's 570 rather than 530) is an excellent
card, but I'd expect expect no less from a DEC-based chipset. :)

I too have had awful problems with the D-Link cards based on the VIA
Rhine chipset.. random lockups (on Linux, NT4 and Win2000) .. very nasty
stuff :(

Just reinforces why I don't trust VIA, and will never buy a Athlon so
long as VIA are producing the mobo chipsets for them ...
