Re: SARGE compatible Gigabit Ethernet adapter/card

Thanks Justin: 

What gets me - is - how do you know a card is compatible before buying?

I've got a SARGE installation, with a "2.6.8-2-686" kernel installed. 
If I do modconf, and look for modules to load - if I were to buy an
Intel card, and I can't see anything remotely looking like an Intel

I'm looking in: kernel/drivers/net module.

So - if I can't find anything looking like Intel support, how would
Sarge just support such a network card?

Thanks Jim.
