3c509 is an ISA PNP card IRCC, what you need to do is
pnpdump > /tmp/isapnp.conf
edit that file and find where your network card it. Uncomment the revelant
lines. There is only two so guess which one it is if you like :-) .
Remember to uncomment ACT Y at the end. Then
and everything should work. If it does,
cp /tmp/isapnp.conf /etc/isapnp.conf
and it should work next time on bootup. Note that this means the 3c509
will always have to be a module
