Actually, there's no software NICs as far as I know, since Linux likes
real hardware and not emulated crap win-hardware. Linux supports
almost every ethernet NIC in existance. Exceptions are some of the
newer Gigabit Ethernet cards don't have modules yet (though all the
common Gigabit NICs do), and development prototype NICs sometimes
behave somewhat strangely (I once purchased a slightly used prototype
Intel PRO 10/100+ Server NIC from a buddy of mine who got a few of the
surplus prototypes when that model went to production...with a
slightly different chipset).
