Ok, got a weird one for ya, BTW not on the mailing list pls CC me in

Running a HP Vectra VL600, 3com 3c905c 10/100 nic
Redhat 6.1, fresh install right from the CD. 

Was funny at first Nic kept crabbing irq 0 and locking up the system. 

Fixed that part thankfully. 

Unfortunataly No network conectivity on comp so I gotta type the stuff

basically in a nutshell when i type in "insmod 3c905x" it tell the driver
info yadda, that's it. No nic card detected nothing. 

Ifconfig shows only lo device, and when:
"ifconfig eth0 up"
is typed in it gives the message device not found. i forget the exact
message as I'm home the machine is at work, and my brain hurts from the 4
hours after hours configuring machine.

I even used the Drive direct from 3com, Ah well any such help will be
