Mac driver for Linksys etherfast LAN card? - Mac Networking

Linksys does not appear to make a Mac driver for their Etherfast 10/100 LAN card (I have a LNE100tx ver 5.1), so I'm looking for a "hackware" driver or some other means to get this card to work in the PCI slot of an older Power Mac computer (OS 9.2.2)....

    Might not work but try this site:

    True#16Others

    I used it with a D-Link card before they came out with the official
    drivers for OS 9. I did have to patch the driver to get it to recognize
    the card.

    It may not be necessary with the current drivers but I used a hex editor
    (Hexedit 1.8.5 [url]http://store.ifd.com/!products/hexedit/index.html[/url])
    to find and replace, in two places in the driver extension, the default
    card name with the one shown in the Apple System Profiler under the
    devices and volumes tab. I think it was something like PCI,1001e. The
    patch instructions came with the driver albeit in somewhat broken
    English.

    The card was a D-Link DFE530TX+
