I have half a dozen D-Link System Inc DGE-530T Gigabit Ethernet Adapter
(rev 11) running in standard PCs (32bit Intel) with Redhat Server and
F8, Fast Ethernet or GBit depending on the switches (no VLAN or fancy
stuff). No problem there.

I ordered two D-Link DGE-530T yesterday - I will
report back !!!
I understand that they support jumbo frames (9000) and VLAN tags.
Then comes the setting up of jumbo frames, VLAN's, VLAN tags and how to
configure dynamic DNS with VLANs !!!!
I had a bunch of them, but the drivers were on again off again,
depending on what kernel was being used. They'd work, then you'd see
long delays before web pages would start to download, and it just
drove me mad. Ditched them in the end for some Netgear GA311 (Realtek
Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8169 Gigabit Ethernet) cards. Haven't
looked back since.
That was a while ago now, maybe a year, so I'd be interested to know
how well they work now. Would be good to know if I could dust them
off and use them again at some point.
