Yes, it is/should be a bog standard DP83905 (AT/LANTIC) implementation.
These cards can act as an ne2000 or a wd8013, as detailed in the
> 2. What settings should I use when configuring the card.
Choose an i/o address that is probed by ne.c and/or wd.c (I'd use the
card in shared memory (wd) mode as it is more efficient than in
PIO (ne) mode.) You have to run the config utility at least once,
since most of these cards ship "disabled". Don't forget to compile
in whichever driver you decide to use (or just compile in both).
> 3. Any special settings I should need to enable/disable in CMOS?
No, but start with conservative settings (ISA <= 8MHz, etc etc) until
you get things sorted. Have a look at a recent copy of the Ethernet-HowTo
as it has a section "Help! It doesn't Work!" and another section just
on getting NE2000 clones detected as that question pops up so often.
They should prove useful to you (and it saves me quoting the same advice
over and over again on mailing lists and newsgroups).
