My 3Com 3c940 1Mbit ethernet card (sk98lin driver), but I suspect this
will be fixed by using kernel 2.4.24 from woody-proposed-updates. I
really think that most hardware problems are kernel related and will be
fixed in the next point release. Until then, put woody-proposed-updates
in your sources.

As for video cards, grab X 4.2 from backports.org or X 4.3 from
deb http://people.debian.org/~nobse/xfree86/ woody main
from the same guy who maintains backport.org.
