Ultra 40 and third party NICs


I have an Ultra40 for which I would like to install a third party 100/1000 NIC card to replace the onboard card.

Has anyone used any third party cards with any success? If so, can you share the model and specifics of using this. I was under the impression that there might be something proprietary that would not allow you to use another third party NIC card, besides it not being supported by Sun. I would like to use this with Linux.
