    the "3Com 3CCFE575BT 10/100 LAN CardBus Card " is among those listed

    When I run netconfig, though, none of the 3com choices matches that
    NIC exactly. So which choice should I make?

    I put it down to my laptop - but that's two of us now !!!

    FYI The Stupid INT value - from a another list posting:

    | pccardslot says that the card says it's on IRQ 255. In PCI-land, 255
    | means "no such", i.e. not using an interrupt. But the c575b driver
    | definitely expects this device to have an interrupt.
    |
    | See if you can do anything with BIOS setup (or possibly card-specific
    | setup software that likely runs on DOS or Windows) to convince it to
    | have an IRQ.
