How do I get 3com 3C905B nic to load appropriate drive / module in Mandrake 9.2

Hello all,

I need a little help with loading nic drivers.

I just loaded Mandrade 9.2 on a Compaq 400 to use as a firewall. All seemed to go well, except I do not have internet access via the interanl nic. I do not have a link light on the card or the switch either. When I looked at the confiuration it listed the nic as a 3com 3c905B but the module being loaded is a 3c59X. Is there a way to fix this without replacing the nic card with a different brand?
