I think most ethernet cards are fine with FreeBSD, if you're prepared to 
consider Project Evil aka ndisgen. [Warning: It's painful. Don't do it 
if you don't have to.] If I'm wrong someone will let us know. If you do 
get one which isn't compatible with FreeBSD, you could try NetBSD. 
AFAICT NetBSD is more about hardware compatibility than the other BSDs.
