Initially, I had problems with an earlier release of the 1.1beta disks
and the 3c503 - and I reported that. With the current disk set, I have
no problems using the 3c503. All I had to do was to list the driver in
/etc/modules. Also, when you try to load the driver by hand, make sure
you use modprobe, not insmod, as the 3c503 is layered on top of
another module. And make sure you run depmod at least once - the new
/etc/init.d/modules doesn't run this every time you boot (unless you
uncomment the relevent lines).
