Last sunday I sent an e-mail to support@dynalink.nl and on
monday (this guys are really fast), they sent me a DOS utility
to upgrade the CIS (it gives the card a manufacturer id, so
cardctl can detect it) and an experimental linux driver (the
card uses a realtek 8139 chip, so the driver is the rtl8139.c
from Donald Becker, with a patch to detect the IRQ).

I've tested it and it works, but only if you have two cards.

I did two tests:

1. In my first test I was using another card on slot 0 (a
friend's Dynalink L10C) and when i inserted the LC100C32 it
worked fine.

2. In the second test, i used only the LC100C32, but it locks
the machine. I suppose the problem is in the patch to detect
the IRQ, but i think it's easy to fix, if i succed i'll post a
message with the patches.
