No interrupt sources are pending.
3c5x9 found at 0x300.
Indication enable is 0000, interrupt enable is 0000.
EEPROM contents:
  Model number 3c509 version 5, base I/O 0x300, IRQ 10, 10baseT port.
  3Com Node Address 00:50:DA:7E:30:2A (used as a unique ID only).
  OEM Station address 00:50:DA:7E:30:2A (used as the ethernet address).
  Manufacture date (MM/DD/YY) 11/11/99, division 6, product WK.
  Options: half duplex, enable linkbeat.
  The computed checksum matches the stored checksum of 7e03.

The enables don't look right, could that be my problem?

I'm sorry, but I have to state the obvious, just in case its something really simple...

modprobe 3c509

and maybe check the logs after that.

I have that card working fine on a sarge box with kernel 2.4.27.  From
the syslog:

Dec 19 10:05:57 localhost kernel: isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...

You should already have the driver:

$ locate 3c509

I do have 3c509 listed in /etc/modules.
