If you do in fact have ODT 3.0, the the Advanced Hardware Supplement,
release 3.4A has 3C509 drivers.

It *is* in the SCO product list, you know... Although it can be a
challenge to find a sales droid who knows what it is, Bela recognizes
it. I don't think it's a big seller, but it's wonderful if you need
it. Using a secure OS beats heck out of trying to write secure apps
on an insecure base. ... rb
P.S. I'll second "Bjxrn"'s affirmation (sorry I don't have the right
Swedish keys): we're using drivers from efs140lli to run dual 3C509's
in a 486DX4-100 system, as well as drivers from the same source to run
3C503-16's, though current cards need a driver patched for the new
series of Ethernet addresses.

Yes, I have. I tried everything, including removing the card and configuring
it on a windoze pc. Reconfigured the Compaq server a dozen times. Called
sco and 3c support about 100 times. downloaded lli drivers for the etherlink
cards from everybody, sco, 3com and assorted samaritan sites, to no avail.
I could make it work, allright, but the first powerdown will shoot me out
of the water. Through the magic of "no support from OS vendor" attitude
from sco and "it should work with the file that is on our bbs at" from 3c
this was a truly unenjoyable experience, specially considering that I was
the idiot who suggested the 3c509 in the first place (cuz they worked so
nice at my old job with pc/win3.11/nt/96 hooked up to suns.
I finally broke down and bought a networker from compaq, because at least
compaq will call me back, and will ship the card with the proper drivers
for sco 3.2.4.x. I got that installed and running in about 5 minutes, not
counting recompilation of kernel.
