the 509B is a combo card, right? will it auto-sense the correct
connector to use? if not, you might have to plink at it with the
dos-based config tool.
if you have the option, odds are you'll have much better luck with a
15$ pci card. you can usually pick up rtl8129 (?) or similar cards
for about that little, or e.g. netgear fa-301tx 10/100 tulip clones
finally, it might be that the boot kernel was compiled without
networking support (unlikely, but hey...). if you have the
opportunity, try installing on a real machine, then transferring the
hard disc to the loaner. or maybe try the slackware floppy boot set.
finally, can you find a boot/install floppy that can handle that
network card? it might be easiest to do a network install...
free-association at its finest,
