Take a look at system information icon in controlpanel to see if the card
shows up there.

I do not think HPCs in general are able to run multifuntional cards, even my
labtop is not able to run my Eiger multifunction modem/ethernet card
although I spend ours on the phone with technical support.

I think so, to have a chance to get it to work you would need drivers and I
don't think those will be available soon. Even 3com just now released Ce
drivers for some of their network cards I heard.


Hope this helps a bit
