Yes, this nic works in windoze. Same mac address. AFAIK, the mac address 
is significant. I have several nics lying about here. I was also 
intending to set up an ne2000 clone, and then even tomsrtbt loads a 
module and looks for DHCPOFFER. I believe the mac address can be set 
under linux - how I forget.
