have a query regarding linux hardware supports

hi guys, i have red hat 3 installed in my old pII 350mhz.. i wanted to know whether i could get a linksys NIC 10/100 for it? i'm afraid the red hat may not detect it though... if not what other brands can i look out for?

Have you check out the HCL (Hardware Compatability List) section on this website to see if other users have had success with the hardware?

Have you searched on google?

Also what you really need is the chipset used by the card (usually found by looking at the manufactures logo printed on the chips on the card). more than likely its probably a realtek chipset (just a guess) which are very well supported by the kernel.
