Partial support.

The 3c556 is a 'mini PCI' NIC which is starting to appear as a built-in
adaptor on, at least:

Panasonic CF-L1S
HP OmniBook 6000
Gateway Solo 9300XL and 2150
Compaq Armada E700

Support is partial because the 3c59x.c in kernel 2.2 does not support power
management. A moderate amount of mangling will be needed to make it do so.

The workaround is to add something like the following to your power
management `resume' script:

ifdown eth0
rmmod 3c59x
modprobe 3c59x
ifup eth0

The 3c556 is also supported by Donald Becker's driver
( Although that driver does support power management,
it does not yet do so for the 3c556.

Another variant of this device has been reported. It has a PCI device ID of
0x6056. It has not yet responded to resuscitation attempts.
