i had problems with my 3c905b and redhat linux 5.1.   Updating to the
2.0.35 kernel seemed to fix it.  that included the .99e driver.

Note: i still have problems with the ff.ff.ff.ff station address after any
type of 'warm boot'  I have to completely shut off the power to the ATX
board in order for it to work.
