Maybe it's just the ones we've got here, but that's definately not true 
in my experience.  All of the compaq Deskpros we use as cluster nodes 
have eepro100 cards in them, and while they seem to work ok in the 
Compaq machines, they occasionally work for upwards of 10 mintues if 
put in a different machine.  Perhaps it's because they're Compaq OEM'd, 
but I'd rather have a 3Com, DEC Tulip-based, or NatSemi-chipset NIC
