I have the exact same board as you speak of above in two of my computers.
It works just fine. I believe its called 3C905-TX-NM though. It uses the
same drives as 3C905-TX anyway.

make sure that you have 'device xl0', 'controller pnp0' and 'controller
pci 0' in your kernel conf. kernel.GENERIC should find the board too.
