I'm just coming back to this, mostly to understand what's going on. Thanks for replies.

 I tried this, guessing at kernel.conf syntax,  but still couldn't get any response (except mine's a EtherExpress 16 and comes under the ie(4) driver). I may not have got 
the syntax right but also I think the card may be broken (and so cheap not worth spending any more time on).

I do have one more question if anyone can give me an answer. If the network card has 32kb of memory enabled at d0000, should I or should I not reserve that area 
in BIOS?
