Lantastic 6.0 startnet.bat problems

I have a lantastic 6.0 question. I understand this is an extremely outdated system. I have a customer who had a custom accounting application written to run on Lantastic - thus the need to fix this.
I put together a new server. I purchased a 3COM 3C503 (thin net) network card on ebay. It's a 16-bit card. I'm having a heck of time getting the nic to load in the startnet.bat. The exact error I'm receiving:
ERROR: No network hardware found at I/O base address 0300H.

This is the 3rd NIC I've tried using. I made sure this is one of the nics listed in the lantastic setup. It's calling 3C503MM

The line I in the startnet.bat is:
3C50CMM IRQ=3 IOBASE=300

This card is hardware jumpered and I have the jumpers set on
I/O 300
IRQ 2E0
I have the onboard memory jumper set to disable.

I haven't installed lantastic since 1993. I now remembered how much I hate it.
This customer said the magic words "I don't care what it costs"... So I've been working on this for 2 days.

What am I missing?
I put a 50ohm terminator on the BNC port of the NIC thinking this might be the problem.

Please help.

With some motherboards, you have to use the BIOS set up to specify that there is legacy (16-bit) hardware at certain I/O port,s IRQ's, or mas addresses.  Also, if the motherboard has 2 serial ports on it, IRQ 3 is in use; you'll need to pick another.  IRQ 5 is usually safe, as are 10 and 11.  Again, a visit to the mobo's BIOS might be needed to tweak the settings of on-board features.

Your IRQ shouldn't be 2E0...that's not possible.  Your IRQ for that card should be 3 and the I/O should be 300.

I thought 2E0 was the com port setting. Let me pull that jumper and see if it works.
