3c905B-TX on ASUS P2B board no working

Unfortunately, disabling the 'USB serial bus controller' in the BIOS does not
work. Now, Win98 shows IRQ 9 being used by the 3c905B-TX card and an 'IRQ
Holder for PCI Steering' (If I disable PCI Steering in Win98, the ethernet card
will not work at all). So, I think that there is no longer IRQ conflict with
the ethernet card. Yet, all packets are still lost when pinging in Linux.
When I run the 'configuration and diagnostic programme' contained in the 3c905B
installation disk, it reports the following and terminates:
!!! ERROR !!! [/XCVR:(100BASE-TX | 100BASE-T4 | 100B
So, does anybody know what the real problem is? Thanks for your replies.
