Does anyone know of any lan cards with multiple ports on them with good linux (redhat) driver support.
Ideally need a card with at least 8 ports.

I think that you can get only 4 port NIC...(4x 100Mb/s FD) 800Mb bandwidth.. With port trunking or card grouping you can connect 2 NIC/s as one into loadbalancing server (1.6 Gb bandwidth)... (I thing that you can't mount 8 x RJ45 conns into one CARD pannel or maybe im wrong). See some companys.. (Extreme, Cisco, 3COM, AliedTelesyn, Cabletron, Trendware etc..)
