dmesg is a good place to look. Also try lspci (from the pciutils
package). It should give you the card's version string, which should
include the model number. If you have a 3c90x series card, you probably
want the (ill-named) 3c59x driver. Once you know which card you have it
will be easy to tell you which driver will serve it. For starters, you
can try the networking directory of the kernel docs, or google.

good times,
