Speaking of USB devices (recent thread on wireless USB),  I need at 
least 4 USB ethernet dongles, cheap.  So on EBay I found:

Now these specific auctions have ended, but these items are there from 
the sellers multiple times.

Trying to find out if any of them will work for Centos.  One is listed 
as using RealTek chipset, but not which one.

I asked the sellers about chipsets to find out about Linux support and 
the first one listed the seller just restated it works for Windows....

Any help would be appreciated.  I need these for test systems so best is 
it works and is cheap....
