The <subj.> NIC doesn't work with the driver provided with the 2.4
kernels, due to the misleading identification of the pci ID 9805 as dual
server NIC (3c982) (don't have this one).
The correct one is 3c980c (with tornado chipset).
In pci.ids it was corrected in the last 2.4 kernels.
For the 3c59x driver a small patch is necessary <attch.> to make it work.
Hope it will make it into the next release(s).

Best regards,
Bogdan-Gabriel Bordea
