Thanks, winsor.
The card has a DOS configuration program that I used to set different options in CMOS trying to fix this
problem. I will make what you sugest me.
The most incredible fact is that after automatic module install by means of a script the card isn't recognized
but after manual install of the same module, mulinux become to see the card.
It is a mistery for me this behavior.
