Y'know, you got me in the right direction, and I think I'm _almost_
there. I went into my BIOS and found a setting for what operating system
I'm using (Other, Windows 95, Windows 95/98; strange, eh?). I set it to
"Other" and rebooted. When I did that, Linux saw the other two sockets!
But, when I plug my 3COM 3c575 card into the replicator's sockets, I get
the message:


Feb 20 14:10:38 localhost cardmgr[200]: executing: 'modprobe -r 3c575_cb'
Feb 20 14:10:38 localhost cardmgr[200]: executing: 'modprobe -r cb_enabler'
Feb 20 14:10:49 localhost cardmgr[200]: unsupported card in socket 3
Feb 20 14:10:49 localhost cardmgr[200]:   no product info available
Feb 20 14:10:49 localhost cardmgr[200]:   PCI id: 0xffff, 0xffff

Which is strange because it's the same card I use in the laptop's
sockets to network...
