WinPcap doesn't work very well on Linux. :-)

Linux will probably support all those cards, as libpcap on Linux uses  
PF_PACKET sockets, and PF_PACKET sockets don't make any distinction  
between different network adapter types; the adapter just needs to be  
exposed as a standard network card.  You'll probably not have much  
more luck capturing at full speed, and you might have to disable any  
TCP offloading done on the cards.
