installation of 3c509 module from Woody diskette.

Debian Users,

This problem occurs in an attempt at diskette/network 
installation of Woody on an ISA 486 DX with a SCSI disk
attached via an AHA-1542B.

I retrieved the Woody 3.0.23, 2002-05-21 images,
rescue, root, driver-{1..4}.bin, and put them on diskettes.
Installation appeared OK until attempting to install 
kernel module 3c509.  IO address and IRQ were set
in the module configuration to values previously set 
in the EPROM of the card.  This was tried for these 
three cases.
io=0x300 irq=5
io=0x300 irq=10
io=0x300 irq=12

C5X9CFG.EXE complained that IRQ 11 was already
allocated, suggesting that IRQs 5, 10 and 12 were OK.

In each of the three cases this message surfaced.

"Note: /target/etc/modules.conf is more recent than

/lib/modules/2.2.20/net/3c509.o: invalid parameter parm_io
/lib/modules/2.2.20/net/3c509.o: insmod
/lib/modules/2.2.20/net/3c509.o failed
/lib/modules/2.2.20/net/3c509.o: insmod 3c509 failed

Installation failed."

An AT-1500T NIC produced analogous results.

Any insights or suggestions?

Thanks,          Peter E.
