New to Linux, Need help with NIC - 3COM 3c905-tx

Hello all,

 I am new to Linux and after several hair-pulling days, I finally got 
Red Hat 5.1 installed... Whew, they weren't kidding when they said it 
was difficult.

 Anyways, I am having trouble initializing my NIC card.  I am 
using a 3Com 3C905-TX (PCI) Card.  I read a bunch of info on the 
card and new drivers and kernels and stuff, but I just got more 
confused.  Hear is what I know:

 I am running Kernel version 2.0.35, it's trying to set the irq to 0 
which I get a warning that it probably won't work.  I got a copy of the 
updated 3c59x.c file but can only find a 3c59x.o file on my system.  
However when I run ifconfig it does mention 3c59x.c.  I just can't 
figure out where this file is.  I do not have the directory structure 
/drivers/net as listed in the boomerang.html.  Any help would be 
greatly appreciated...
