I actually had good luck with ISA 3com 3C509 cards as long as I set them to 
be PNP.  I normally force them not to be, but m0n0 refused to recognize 
mine until I did so.  Can't say that the same applies to others, but just 
my personal experience.  I agree however, life will be simpler if they are 
all PCI cards.
