We've had good success with Intel cards.

If your server is PCI only (not PCI-X), try:

If you want PCI-X, try:

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=33-106-117&depa=0

If you need PCI-X and two interfaces, try:

    http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=33-106-202&depa=0

All of these cards use Intel's open-source "e1000" driver.  (I believe
that Intel is still maintaining it, and that the kernel developers go
re-sync against Intel's latest version occasionally.)
