Where can I find a list of compatible ethernet cards for Linux in the United States? (a list of major vendors would help, too)

I don't know of any such list, but I do know from experience that most cards from 3com, specifically the 3c509b ( 10mps ), and 3c905b/c ( 10/100mps ) have worked flawlessly for me.

HP, SMC, Intel, and IBM all tout their cards as being Linux compatible.

With regards to other card manufacturers, I've found that their driver support is poor, and trying to find or install a driver or update is a nightmare.

it depends on the vendor/brand of linux you are going to install ie: go to the red hat site http://www.redhat.com/support/hardware/
and click on hardware compatibility lists there is a form that will return a list of supported cards most vendors will have these lists in one form or another

good luck
