At the moment (Oct 1999) the "HFC PCI 2BDS0" chip from Cologne Chip Design (CCD) is quite popular and is used on a number of cards. As the design is basically single-chip, I expect there won't be much variation between the different vendors, hence the same config should be usable.

This chip is supported from linux 2.2.12 onwards.
