Yes, Linux 2.0+ (Caldera OpenLinux 1.2 is Linux 2.0.32 or thereabouts)natively supports Token Ring cards with the Tropic chipset.  This set of cards includes the 3Com Tokenlink.

There may be problems with the TokenLink Velocity ISA card, however, all other Tokenlink cards seem to function without incident.

If you've configured your machine already, you may need to recompile the kernel to enable the support.

If you already have your kernel compiled for module support, try this at a shell prompt while logged in as root:

modprobe ibmtr

See what happens.

If it doesn't work, you'll need to recompile the kernel with Token Ring support.  It's probably easiest to just compile the token ring stuff right into the kernel (see the Kernel-HOWTO on how to do this... http://metalab.unc.edu/LDP/HOWTO/Kernel-HOWTO.html).
