[lug] 3com NIC problem

I installed a 3Com 3c509 NIC. I am running Mandrake 6.5. I ran modprobe
3c509.o and got a return message: eth0:3c509 at 0x280 tag1, 10baseT,
10baseT port, address, 00 20 af 1e dd 9c, IRQ 11.
I then edited /ect/ conf.modules to add the following lines:
alias eth0 3c509
options 3c509 io=0x280 IRQ=11
I rebooted and ran dmesg and lsmod. Neither command returned any reference
whatsoever to eth0 or any other NIC type comment.
Why is Linux ignoring this card? What should I change or do differently?
Thanks is advance.
