On the server, yeah, I can see that concern. But on the client, who
cares? Remember, folks, that even a Pentium-133 is overkill for an LTSP
thin client on which you're not running apps locally. Doesn't sound
like he's doing that.
A couple of minutes on PriceWatch led me to this model of NIC. It is
the Zonet ZEN3301E 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet Card w/ PXE Boot ROM.
Here's the link.
