I've had good luck with 3Com as well. Both the 575 & 3c589. I would
avoid the LAN/Modem cards. Had trouble (haven't tried since I did the
rc mods tho) with both the 10MB/33bps card and the 10/100/56kv90 cards.
I would recommend starting pcmcia early. I edited:
/etc/rc3.d/S45pcmcia to /etc/rc3.d/S04pcmcia
/etc/rc5.d/S45pcmcia to /etc/rc5.d/S04pcmcia
and now my ethernet cards come up everytime. This change also helped my
PCMCIA SCSI card as well.
