will tell you if the system can see it and identify it..
According to this list..
That card is supported and the driver is
3Com Megahertz 3CCFEM556B, 3C3FEM556C
if the system can see the card (it was listed using one of hte ls commands..) try loading the driver module
If there is no error then the driver should have loaded successfully.
will list the loaded modules so you can verify it is indeed running.
should show you the card being loaded and what eth(X) designation it was given... Most likely eth0
you can try at this point to bring the interface up (the Interface MUST be plugged into a hub or switch in order to come up)
if it comes up successfully you are golden.. if not then you may need to edit the configuration for the network interface.. and I have no clue where it would be in that distro..
