Yes, there is a depca driver for Linux. The latest version I'm aware
of is 0.8. You can find it on nic.funet.fi in BETA/depca. The README
says it is a patch against 0.99.14, but I just applied it against
0.99.14p without any problem. Beware of the version of libc you are
using. The latest version (4.5.9 and 4.5.10) are very strict and depca.c
wouldn't compile. I had to downgrade to libc-4.4.4 to compile the kernel.

1. DEC depca ethernet card recognized by Linux?

I've got an old 8 bit Ethernet card from Digital, which according to the
FCC ID and to
http://www.wi-inf.uni-essen.de/~schwarze/nt/karten/net13.html appears to
be a DEC depca. Booting Linux 2.2.9 with Lance support compiled in it is
not recognized, even when supplying lilo with ether=5,0x300,0xd000,eth0
(those are the values jumpered according to the above web page).
The LEDs do not light up either.
Is there anything I could still try?
