Who told you that? I have two of them one on each of my computers. Red Hat
ships supplied with it. Look in /usr/src/linux/drivers/net/3c59x.c. It
should say this at the top:

This driver is for the 3Com "Vortex" and "Boomerang" series ethercards.
Members of the series include Fast EtherLink 3c590/3c592/3c595/3c597
and the EtherLink XL 3c900 and 3c905 cards.

If it doesn't, ftp to and get a kernel under the kernel
directory. They had up to 2.0.29 there the last time I looked.
