A 3com "boomerang" driver is available at:

http://cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov/linux/drivers/vortex.html

The version in a recent kernel (say 2.0.30) was .25 from around 5/17/96
the current one v.41 is 6/16/97.

I've witnessed sort of erratic performance in 100baset, but it should work
fine as a replacement for a 3c503...
