Will my 3C905B card work in RH5.1?

I have a system I'm trying to set up with Redhat 5.1, and the network card is a 3Com 3C905B-TX.  In Redhat's hardware list it is in the 'compatible, but unsupported' category - with the comment (works for some people at 10Mb)  During setup, it was recognized as a 3C509 (Vortex)

I can't get it to connect to our network, how do I tell if the card itself isn't working, or whether the settings are not correct?
