My on-board SiS900 chipset ethernet adaptor, on a hideous PC Chips
motherboard, no less, works fine with Red Hat 8.0 and 9.0 Linux's
The other one mentioned, the RTL8139 is a PCI not on-board one, they
say. My PCI card using the same chipset also works fine, with the
default Linux drivers (as above).
There's nothing particularly special about either of those chipsets.
