1. Kernel 2.4 driver for 3MVF 100MBit optical networking card ?


I ran into serious troubles: at our university they installed an
optical network. We got a network card from 3M (Volition VF-45).
On the CD that was delivered with the card there is even a linux-
driver (module 3mvf.o), but only for linux 2.0.36 and 2.2.5/2.2.1/2.2.10.
There is no driver for kernel 2.4 on the 3M webpage
(http://www.3m.com/volition/downloads/nic/linux.jhtml), too.

Is there an open-source driver available ? I desperately need
one for linux > 2.4.1 or my linux box will soon be without network
