You can get a two-port switch from Netgear or Linksys for under $100US, that
will work fine. You'll need a 100baseTX hub on the fast side and a 10baseT
hub on the slow side, as well.
10/100 ISA cards do exist, but quite frankly unless you find them used or at
auction, it will probably be cheaper to put in a PCI motherboard.
Don't really know what's fastest and most stable for Linux--Intel works well
for Novell and NT.
