I'm looking for a network card to install in a six year old Dell Dimension
4100. Due to the age of this PC, I want to minimize expenditures on it. I
plan to set up the PC as a multi-boot Windows and Linux system.
I'm considering the Intel Pro 100M Desktop adapter network card. Retail
versions are available for around $35. Tiger Direct offers an OEM version
Are there significant disadvantages to buying the OEM version of a network
card versus the retail version?
Windows and Linux drivers for the Intel Pro 100M are available at the Intel
I would like to have a diagnostic program for any network card I buy. This
does not to be available at the Intel web site. I expect that a diagnostic
program would be included on a CD with the retail version.
