Strange, That is what I have. 2 FA310TX's, REV-D2 which I bought last end of
last year. To be fair, I did use the "regular" tulip driver which came
with the 2.2.12 kernel. It was the 2.2.17 kernel where I had to use

FA311 in my closet, and I have a floppy with a fa311.c driver file
and then it goes on to say :
"The FA311 driver is developed for use on Linux v2.0.36. It can be
configured either as a static driver into the kernel or as a loadable

operation via an internal PHY. Detailed features are given below.

Newer MP kernels 2.2.xx"
