Subject:   opinion on NICs in mulithomed host

I was wondering what opinions there are regarding the type of NICs to
using in a multihomed machine. Will be using fbsd 4.9-rel. Is it a
good idea to use NIC's from different manufacturers? Same manufacture?
Non-3com? ... As far as performance issues are concerned, is one brand
better than another? 

This will not be doing any bridge/routing... I will be using the
secondard NIC as a private rfc1918 network.  The bsd box will be a
proxy machine.
