This is fragment of TR HOWTO:

       Make sure that you have a Token Ring card that is supported by this
       driver.  Currently the only cards that are supported are those that
       use the Tropic chipset.
       Cards that I personally know to work are:

              IBM Token Ring 16/4 adapter /A
              IBM Token Ring adapter /A
              IBM Token Ring adapter II (4 Megabit only)
              IBM 16/4 ISA Token Ring card (16bit)
              IBM 16/4 ISA Token Ring card (8bit)
              3Com TokenLink Adapter (IBM and 3Com mode)
              HyperRing Classic 16/4

        Please note that IBM makes a DMA/busmaster adapter for ISA with
        the name:

              Token-Ring Network 16/4 Adapter II

        which will *NOT* work.  Do not confuse this card with the IBM
        Token Ring adapter II (4mbit) which does.
