Subject: Query on dual/quad port NIC
I'm looking for a PCI-based dual (preferably) quad-port NIC. The card
needs to work (preferably with all 4 ports functioning) on Fedora/CentOS (Linux
kernel 2.6.26 and upward (i386 arch))
I know you have already received several recommendations... but I did

SUN created a quad port NIC many years ago... they called 'Happy Meal'
because it was based a chipset called 'Big Mac'.
They routinely sell on ebay for less than $20 (USD).
Here's one example:
I know these work... because I have 2 of them I've used in the past.
