Question How to tell Linux I got a 3com ISA card ?


I got an old IBM 400MHz PC I plan to make a firewall for my home network.
It has two network cards.
One is integrated and that one Linux finds ok.

The other one is an very old 10MB 3Com EtherLink III 3C509TP (ASSY 8352-10 REB B) ISA card, and that one Linux cant find.

I have Ubuntu installed on the PC.

How can I get that ISA card working ?
I have used Linux for about 3 weeks, so im

Thank you

You might want to install "isapnptools" also. It should take care of configuring the ISA card.

I have got some strange network problems, so I have not been able to test these yet.

Thank you for the replys.
