Were the errors you were seeing causing problems with the tulip card as
well? Thus, the 3c509's been no problem whatsover. If I didn't ask this
before, does anyone know a command or generated file that displays the set
I/O ports for devices? IRQs can be found in dmesg, but the DMA-I/O ports
can differ, and I suspect that may be where the problem lies. Thanks all.
