I have a P60, 32 MB ram, GCC 2.7.0 (elf, out of the slackware CDROM),
compiled kernel 1.3.98 and I am nicely running the vortex driver 3c59x.

I could manage to run the driver only as a module, setting the options

alias eth0 3c59x
options 3c59x debug=1 options=3

(of course, I have a TBase 2 bnc connection)

The module autoloads correctly.
If I try to load it in the kernel it will fail to work and give the
errors. By the way, I have the same 0.13 version of the driver.
I also didn't set up anything with the 3Com utilities, just plugged the
card out of the Box in the PCI slot.
