[svlug] 10/100 Mbps *ISA* nic recommendations?

For the record, I too have had success with the Linksys 10/100 NIC.

However, I have an old ISA system and was considering adding a 10/100
card to that as well.  But I've some concerns:

- It's an old 486/66.  Is the bus speed even fast enough to keep up
  with 100 Mbps?

- The most common 10/100 ISA based card that I found was the 3COM
  3C515-TX.  Anyone have any experience(s) with this card?

- Are there any other 10/100 ISA nic's that work (well) with Linux?

thanks,
