Can I suggest you consult the rom-o-matic database maintained by the
etherboot/gPXE project? The raw list is at:
For example, it shows that the DGE-530T is supported with the skge
It can be problematic mapping brand names/part numbers to chipsets
though. If you can buy one to test that helps... Do you mean PCI,
PCI-64, PCI-X or PCIe cards? Standard PCI is really too slow for GigE.
Can you say which your motherboard supports? It is a good idea to make
sure the NIC can work at 3.3v or 5v for flexability.
