I lied.  Well, I didn't look closely enough.  It's a 3c905cx-txm. 
Anyway, I tried the 3c59x module first, actually, but it didn't work. 
Now I'm not even sure the 3com provided driver will work.  I might just
put in a different card...

Still wouldn't mind knowing how the third-party module install thing
works, just to satify my curiousity, though.
