I think the DLink 530TX uses the realtek 8139 chipset. If so, it's great.
BTW, I picked up a Belkin 10/100 PCI NIC at Compucenter in the Rideau
center. It was $20 and an RTL8139 card. Works great in every OS I've
ever tried, and you can't beat $20. (At least, I haven't been able to.)
The also had 10mbit PCMCIA D-Link NICs for $25. I don't know why it was
so cheap, usually mall computer stores cost more...
Hope that helps. Cheer,
