Question Mandrake 10.0 and 3com etherlink III (ISA)

I just tried Linux for a first time and I'm stuck already
Mandrake doesn't find my ethernet card (3com Etherlink III Isa). Or at least I think so because HardDrake doesn't show it. I even tried another exactly same kind of card and nothing changed.
What should I do now? I would appreciate it if someone could help me with this...

looks like you need to use the DOS utility for that NIC to setup the IRQ and IO stuff (just like what you would do if you need to use it under windoze).

i'm not sure if mandy 10 still has the isapnp tool, ya?

its been a long time since a tried setting up that card. (though i have it right now on a compaq 486 back home he hehe).

Bios finds my card but things are still the same. Mandrake can't find my etherlink.
I Need a working driver, right?
And I think that there is no isapnp tool...
