I to have a 3C575 card, but in the 2.4.x kernel set support is now
provided by the 3c59x driver. I found on the web (somewhere I don't
quite remember where :-( sorry) details on how to configure the
system so that it works.
Taking a look at my config files I have extracted the following
1) To `/etc/modutils/aliases' I added the lines:
# Alias mapping for the 3c575-series Cardbus cards
alias eth0 3c59x
2) In '/etc/pcmcia/config' I commented out the driver
for the 3c575_cb device:
# device "3c575_cb"
# class "network" module "cb_enabler", "3c575_cb"
3) To `/etc/pcmcia/config.opts' I added the following
class "network" module "eth0"
card "3Com 3c575-TX Fast EtherLink XL"
manfid 0x0101, 0x5057
module "eth0" opts "debug=3 rx_copybreak=300"
4) In my 2.4.x kernel config I the following Ethernet (10 or
100 Mbit) options set:
Note that the VORTEX driver is a module so it can be loaded
when the card is inserted.
Hope this helps
