Try removing or commenting out the options line in the conf.modules.  I also renamed my conf.modules to modules.conf

>  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.
