Thanks karlo, i bought 2 NIC cards of 3COM 3c996B-T
- First NIC at the startup of Proliant, it said NIC are not supported, than system halted.
- Second NIC didn't have any problem at the startup, however can't be installed on windows server, even i have used the driver from 3Com and the one you mentioned. Still the card was unrecognized.

Regards,
Andy
