hex. Vendor ID 4318(10) = 10DE(16) is NVidia. The driver seems to be
seeing an NVidia chip, not the 3Com chip it expects.
My guess would be that it is in fact being pointed at the wrong chip.

Each entry in the output is 30-50 lines long. If it's true that the
motherboard has two NICs, you should see two entries that have
"ClassCode: 0x020000 Ethernet controller". One should have a VendorId
of "10be (Tsenglabs International Co.)" (which I guess has evolved into
NVidia?). The other should have a VendorId of "10b7 (3Com
Pick out the DeviceNum, Function, Bus numbers from the 3Com ethernet
entry. Now run `scoadmin network` and reconfigure the 3C90X driver.
There is a way to tie it to a specific PCI bus/device/function -- I
forget if you have to go into "Advanced" setup or what. Type in the
numbers from `hw`. Now you should be able to relink, reboot, and have
the NIC recognized.
If this doesn't work, please post the `hw` output for the two NICs
