The Mediaone Problem...and DHCP

After reading the HOWTO on getting the Etherlink III (pnp) card to work
under Linux (turn off pnp)
with a 3Com utility  program. I thought that since I had Mediaone
running in my Windows 95 and my
OS2 partition, it might be easier to find another (not disabling pnp)
way to make my  3Com  509B card work under Linux.
If I recall correctly, there was talk about  an RPM, or was it a kernel
source, that allowed for ISA pnp cards
to work under Linux.

    I am running SuSE 6.1 (2.2.5 kernel) and I LOVE SuSE. I bought an
ISA card instead of a PCI card
because I thought an ISA card might have more chance of being recognized
(after some fix)  than a
PCI card.

    I really don't want to turn off the pnp on my ISA card to get it to
work under SuSE Linux 6.1...
are there other options???
