They forgot to remove "linux compatible!" from their product description, too.

I think you should send them a bill :-)

Oh- btw, this card still generates some errors, but in a fun, new, 
exciting, way; doesn't eventually cause the interface to go deaf(fun 
when its the gateway and other members of the household notice within 
30 seconds and declare the internet is "broken"(fun to 'fix' 'the 
internet', simply by walking downstairs and power-cycling the switch 

Also...errors, overruns, and frame count now match:
           RX packets:413923 errors:43 dropped:0 overruns:43 frame:43
           TX packets:427223 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0

...as opposed to the interesting little 5:1 ratio before.

I still haven't gotten around to trying the hub...
