Comment 2 Erik Troan 2001-01-30 17:38:17 EST
This happened because the 3c59x driver (inserted) first, was willing to drive
the 3c905 card, but the install wanted to use the 3c90x driver for that card.

This is a bug, but as the 3c90x driver won't exist as of the 2.4 kernel, I'm not
going to bother fixing it.
