3com NIC embeded on an ASUS P4P800 not working on kernel 2.6.0

I have a 3com Gigabit LAN 10/100/1000 Mbps embeded on my Asus P4P800 mobo, and I have a linux driver for it witch worked fine with kernel 2.4.22.
I would install it to /lib/modules/2.4.22/kernel/drivers/net, ran "make load",
then depmod, and added "modprobe 3c2000" to my rc.modules.
Now with kernel 2.6.0 make load gives me a make error, and obviously doesn't load the driver. In my mobo manual it says the nic is a 3com 940.
In the 2.6.0 kernel, there is support for 3com NICs but only for 905 and 990 series.
What could I do to make it work ?

Try the sk98lin driver, it should work with ASUS P4P800 and kernel 2.6:
