Quad Ethernet cards from Sun are pretty reasonable on eBay (see: http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-of-5-Sun-PCI-Quad-fast-ethernet-cards-501-4366_W0QQitemZ320151202116QQihZ011QQcategoryZ20328QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem - lot of 5 for $25, individual cards are cheap as well) - would that be an option?

I think Google should be of help:
