I have allready tryed to make it work changing rc.modules and using "modprobe ne" and have got nothing... :(

So, if there anyone, who has allready made this, or who exactly knows how to do this, please write detailed, step by step instruction(s).
(I am not very good in linux)

As root in a console type:

modprobe isapnp

Then check lsmod to see if that loaded. If it did the
you can try ifconfig eth0 up and then dhcpcd eth0

After that use ifconfig to look to see if there is an inet
address.

You do not need to post the output of lspci since that will
not show ISA cards.

If the above does not work please post the output of
pnpdump

Thanks I think that t have allready found a sollution... The card works just after adding modprobe ne to the rc.modules...  :)

Linux just don't show it in GUI configure options and ifconfig don't show it before it is configured... So it works now (just need to be configured manually in console)...

You can use netconfig to configure your card, there
is another way if needed.
