Question Has anyone successfully compiled Kingmax-10/100 modified sources under 2.2.x?

If there exists drivers for this cards, although non standard, why is it so hard to compile them? I mean, at least someone should have successfully compiled then, otherwise those drivers wouldn't exist. I'm using kernel 2.2.14 and pcmcia-cs-3.1.14. There is a 8390.c source for 2.2.x kernels within a message addressed to this list on november '99; however, it doesn't compile. I know that this cards are not 100% NE2000 compatible, and it is not officially supported by the kernel nor pcmcia-cs, but there must be a way to make them work with the modified sources. Please, help me, I'm desperate. I have to keep using windows in order to use my cable modem, and I've not money to buy another net card. It's a nightmare being forced to use windows. I would gladly write up a mini-howto for this cards, but I must get it to work first. The kingmax chipset is included in lots of generic network cards, so a lot of linux users have or will have troubles with these bitches. TIA
