RH 6.0 & 3C905C TXM Problems
I got the same machines, same cards (3c905C-TX), and finally figured out
how to make it work. You will need to recompile the kernel. However,
the kernel Redhat distributes is too old for the 3c905C card; you will
have to replace linux/drivers/net/3c59x.c with one you get from the
Driver Source Code section of
http://cesdis.gsfc.nsas.gov/linux/drivers/vortex.html. I used the
Development/Test version; I don't know if the "stable" version will run
the Tornado or not.
FWIW, I had to compile it into the kernel itself to get it working on
boot. You can compile it as a module and verify functionality (i.e.
pinging to a dotted quad address), but I don't know how to get the
nameserver, etc. working through rc.d on boot.

and are right. - H. L. Mencken
