SubjectRe: Included NIC module in newly compiled 2.4.130 finds only the first of 3 NICs 3c509
In article <6LdG7.12321$> you write:

Well, I would try the 3c59x driver for starters, built as a module.
Source code claims that it does the 3c905 and I believe I have it
running on some of my servers which are behind a firewall and can't
readily be checked.
