RE: two ethernet ports on one PCI NIC?

Think you will have to go to a 4 port NIC, Im not aware of a 2 port one, 

I know of 2 made but I have not tried either, one is a dlink unit (the other
intel or 3com?)and Ive used the single port version so the chipset works,
but not if 4 are seen by Debian (you can send me one to try if you want

Subject: two ethernet ports on one PCI NIC?

I run a small postfix/ecartis Email list service (double opt in) for 
some charities.  My firewall is due to be replaced and I'd like to go 
for one of these new tiny, very quiet boxes since the old things I've 
got do create a great racket in my study and take up space.  All the 
tiny boxes I'm considering have one ethernet port on the motherboard 
but only one PCI slot.  Anyone know of a reliable dual ethernet NIC 
for PCI that has linux drivers (Debian tested ideally)?
