I don't think either would be supported by SRM on AS500, so things
such as BOOTP would be impossible with one of those.

Intel PRO-100 is supported by newer SRMs on later boxes, I believe.

Currently in AC-1.0, the "e100" driver is chosen by anaconda, and it
has a problem with unaligned accesses, so I recommend trying the
"eepro100" one.

I don't know anything about the 3Com, but they are usually fine.

Either NIC will be better once Linux is running than the old TULIP
2104x WRT speed...
