    this site will help you out install the card:
    http://support.3com.com/infodeli/too...nux/readme.txt

    to assign an adress, default gateway, and submit parameters use the linux command
    ifconfig

    typing ifconfig and the interface for example:
    ifconfig eth0
    will display interface configuration.

    I suggest reading the man pages on that one. Online: http://www.die.net/doc/linux/man/man8/ifconfig.8.html
    on your box:
    man ifconfig

    here's a good explanation of the ifconfig command: http://www.tldp.org/LDP/nag/node73.html

    A normal config for ifconfig is:
    Code:
    ifconfig interface [[-net|-host] address [parameters]]
    example:
    ifconfig eth0 192.168.2.1 netmask 255.255.255.0
