The ethernet cards in both my desktop workstation and the
server with the modems on it are from NetGear and use the DEC tulip
chip (with the tulip.o driver). The ethernet runs at 100mbps.
Both machines are uniprocessors running SMP kernels where
everything that can be a module is (except for the initial ramdisk
and romfs which are used to bootstrap everything else).
