What 3c905 card are you using?  The sc905B-tx isn't worth the trouble in ANY
operating system.  The Revision A cards work fine but we'll need a little bit
more information.

Please send the output of this command  "vortex-diag -aa" and how you are loading
the card (module or compiled into the kernel.
