Mmm, I am quit used to install, 3com NICs and I humbly think you
mixed 509 with 905, there is nothing in the description of the 3c509
that says it should work with a 3c905.
The 3c509(B/TX) are old 10Mb ISA NICs, while you wher looking for the
a 10/100 PCI NIC. The description of the 3c59x (your driver) talks
somewhere of "newer" drivers, which includes the 3c59x and the 3c9xx
(not cited, this is a real problem).
