Default 4 port ethernet card support

Hello,

I've just received and old 4 port adaptec 10/100 ethernet card:
ANA-6944A/TX
http://www.freelabs.com/~whitis/hardware/quartet.html

http://www.adaptec.com/en-US/support/_eol/net_dec-based/ANA-6944A-TX/

Searching '/usr/src/linux/drivers/net' shows this file:
bnx2x_init_values.h
with this string:
0x06644d79

Not very useful. Any ideas how to search out the kernel sources for that
master ethernet driver that supports this old adaptec hardware?


Has anyone every gotten one of these to work with a 2.6.x linux kernel?

Why not just ask Google for ANA-6944A and Linux? It turns up stuff like
this: http://www.freelabs.com/~whitis/hardware/quartet.html
which suggests it might work with the Tulip driver.
For grepping the sources, a much better guess than the model is the PCI
ID.

cheers,
Matthias
