I have goten your card to work succesfully i have a compile 2.2.15 version what i had
to do i believe is edit teh compile_UP file :

gcc -c 3c90x.c -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -fomit-frame-pointer \
-fno-strength-reduce -pipe -m486 -malign-loops=2 \
-malign-jumps=2 -malign-functions=2 -DCPU=486 \
-DMODULE -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include
then i did a ./compile_UP  and it made a 3c90x.o file i copied that into
and i made a file inside one of the moduls.conf files i cant remeber but you can test
your install by insmod 3c509x.o ithinki had some module option problems too.
