I have a personal bias toward the Broadcom 5703-based adapters, but
that's because I wrote the Tru64 driver for them.  ;-)  I've heard that
the Linux drivers for those adapters aren't very good, but that's
definitely second-hand knowledge.  

I haven't personally used Gigabit under Linux so let us know what you
choose and how things work!
