Are you sure you dont have a 3c905B? That's what Dells come with
nowadays, and it uses the 3c59x driver....
BTW: the 3c59x driver .99e (stock) in 2.1.110+ (maybe even
2.1.109? I didnt use that one..) crashes  the machine
on ifconfig when used with a 3c905B card (despite everyone saying its
not supported, the card has worked wonderfully
under all other kernel versions and old drivers)..... when it compiles
it says something about using the  "Old PCI interface"
... does anyone know how to fix this?
