This thread would seem to indicate your search will not be in vain.
However, note that if you're looking for a manufacturer to expressly state
they are Linux compatible, you're a few years too early. Still, with the
return policy clarified beforehand, you should be able to get something
that will work.
Also, check pricewatch.com for a list of cards. There's quite a lot to
choose from, and though I didn't look at all of the cards, of the ones I
did, none of them said Linux compatible. It doesn't mean they aren't, just
that it isn't guaranteed.
