SubjectEthernet Card Hassles

We have a cheapo NE2000 clone card. It has EEPROM on board.

For one reason or another, the port is set to the wrong type, and the
setup disk is absent/missing/lost...

Unfortunately, there is a Winbond chip on board, to handle the EEPROM
settings, and we have only been able to find setup programs for the
AT/LANTIC chips (under both DOS *and* linux) for this.

Additionally, a setup disk we have for another WinBond based card (same
chip id) refuses to start, unless the specific card is there. If this
check were bypassed, we could presumably change to settings.
