I have 3 dlinks one 528 and 2 530's. All 3 work very well especially
for the price. Mandrake 7.1 and 8.0 picked up them up without problem.
Problems: on both the 530's, the rj45 socket no longer holds the cable
connector securely. There were probably under 30 connect/disconnects
before the sockets failed. The cards still work, just don't wiggle the
cables ;). Mandrake 8.0 on an ancient ibm PI pukes when 2 530's are
in machine. I believe its a scripting, harddrake or bios issue rather
than a dlink problem since Mandrake 7.1 sees them both.
