	Off the top of my head I recall alot of work done on that
	driver in the past six months or so.  I'll take a stab that
	Caldera is shipping an older kernel (less then 2.0.30).

	I would get 2.0.33 and recomplie; it has the latest version
	of the 3c905 driver in it from D Becker.

	I think there are also options for FDX/HDX and 10/100 in
	that card family driver code.  If the card is identified
	during boot, try plugging it to to a 10mb segment, does
	traffic flow?  Are theere LEDs on the card showing FDX/HDX

	Anyway, some random thoughts.
