Thanks for the reply

As you said the driver for the ne2000 compatiable, i tried to load wd.o,
It showed me a list of unresolved functions.
I fell the driver for the card is 3c501, since it is not showing any unresolved symbols.
      I have seen the card type from windows, the card is
            NE2000 compatiable
            Manufacturer : Novel/Anthem
            Hardware Version : 1.0.01

   If 3c510 is not the driver why insmod displays
        loading eth0
   any idea ??
Thanks

I think it is ne.o , not '3Canything', but you must load 8390.o before.

Hope this helps.

means  invalid port or invalid module

Redhat can't load it.
