Be sure to disable plug and pray! Boot with dos and run the card utilities
to set the irq and address, write them down and then disable plug and play.
When you boot from the Linux boot disk it will find the 3com card just fine.
We use the same 3com card in several Linux machines at our school.
Also see our site at http://www.riverdale.k12.or.us/linux/howto.html for
lots of other tips.
