I have just bought three network-cards and now I want to find the right software (drivers)
for them. Below I've listed all the things I found written on the various boards.
If you know what kind of board it is and perhaps where to find software to them, please
write me a mail as soon as possible. I'm also looking for some information about the
jumper settings on these boards.

I think that card #1 is a NE1000 compatible (or maybe it is a NE1000!), the other two sound pretty generic. I would suggest using NE1000/2000 drivers  as they work with about anything. If this doesn't help, could you give more amplifing information, i.e. are they ISA cards? what kind of network connections do they have, 10BT, AUI, BNC? A last suggestion is to use Win95 or Linux to try and determine the type and settings for the cards. In my expirience using "mystery" cards are more of a headache than the price of a cheap Ethernet card. :)
