Re: Simple network card problem


Your problem is covered in the Ethernet HOWTO.  See section
3.7 -->"Linux and ISA Plug and Play Ethernet Cards".  You should
also look at section 5.0 as well.


You can get a program, 3C5X9cfg.exe from the 3COM web site 
that does the configuration described in these sections 3.7

Goto: http://support.3com.com/infodeli/tools/nic/3c509/3c5096.1.htm
and get the two files downloadable at the bottom of the page.  Disk
#2 has the 3C5X9cfg.exe on it.  You'll see it when you extract the
file contents.

Before doing any of the stuff mentioned in the HOWTO you should probably
make the resource permanently assigned in Windows for that card.
