[K12OSN] 3com ISA nic not working



I posted here yesterday with a ISA network card not working issue.  I have gotten older SMC8013 cards to work perfectly.  I have also confirmed that these nics are not running in PnP mode.

So here is the message that I get from the workstation as it boots.

Running /linuxrc
Mounting /proc
linuxrc: Installing 3c509 driver
modprobe 3c509 io=0x300

...


is there something wrong with the driver?

These workstations used to login just fine into a K12LTSP 2.0.2 server ... I am running K12LTSP 2.1.1  using the Etherboot to boot.

PCI 3com905c cards with PXE boot, work great.


many thanks
