    I dont see why you shouldnt be able to?
    I've only every seen 100MBPS PCI cards, about 25 bucks from DSE... Why ISA?

    I suspect you won't find any ... "obsolete" bus.

    In theory it would be held back by the bus (bandwidth only 80 Mbps) but it would be usable. Other components: CPU, disk, would mean that you wouldn't be using the Ethernet speed.

    Mmmm... 10Mbps should do though... It'd just take a bit longer. Its fine for small time file-sharing and ICS, as I'm still using an old card at the mo!

    Your new machine's interface might be able to drop to 10Mbps.

    Yes the 3Com 3C515 can do this, however the documentation reports it is only capable of moving data at 25Mb/s due to ISA bus performance.
    I have used them before and they work well. There is even driver support built into 2K and XP for them.

    i tried a 10mps ISA card, and started transfering a 500mb file, and it said it had 200min remianing after 10min, so i took it out (that was to slow 4 me) and thought i'd ask if u can get 100mps ISa cards.....

    Hmm... not a prob if u go overnight, But I've transfered about 800Megs of mp3s in about 20-30 mins (I think that's about the amount of time it took?!)
