You have first to modify the card with the windows utility as described in 3com manuals to set the irq and io.
The first time I used this card in mulinux, I had to manually insert the module into the kernel. This happens by moving to the network modules directories and then issuing the
insmod 3c509.o
After I saved the configuration to hard disk (clone), the installation is automatic. Sometimes I use floppy boot, and for some reason the module is not found at boot time so I have to insert the module manually again. I use mulinux r13.

Good day to you all,

I am using a 3Com509 B TPO (in ISA mode) but I can't get it to work.
Because of that I tried to use an utility of David Becker ( <> something like that ) to install the card.
The utility is able to spot the card and affirmative about the i/o number being ' 0x300 ' . When I tried to set-up the eth0 in mulinux I got: ' i/o symbol not found ' . Under Dos/Windows I used a set-up utility from 3Com and the card tested good on i/o 0x300 and IRQ 10. What am I doing wrong, can I manually make changes to a configuration file ?
Can anyone give me proper instruction / share experience?
Thanks in advance,
