No, not at all...

in part

02:00.0 Ethernet controller: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88E8056 PCI-E
Gigabit Ethernet Controller (rev 12)

Drivers for the above mobo eth are not installed. I always have had
problems eventually with Gigabit dropping packets, so I did not use this
built in eth, just the Linksys PCI NICs.

05:01.0 Ethernet controller: ADMtek NC100 Network Everywhere Fast
Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11)
05:02.0 Ethernet controller: ADMtek NC100 Network Everywhere Fast
Ethernet 10/100 (rev 11)
