Thanks Andrew. I should have written "...but cannot access the nic".  I do have
the driver installed, but the syslog files don't show the NIC.

I know, but sometimes its the really simple things... actual conversation follows

wife "I can't get the car door open"
me "did you unlock it?"
wife "oh..."

and she's no dummy...

anyway, so the module is loaded, but doesn't show in the syslog? When does it load? automatically on boot, or do you have to modprobe it? are there any useful parameters in modinfo? your question about the "enables" may be pertinent, can you set that through modprobe parameters?

just thinking aloud

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.
