This is the important chip. The 8392 and 8390 are basically the same if I
remember rightly. So its probably an NE2000 clone. Try the NE2000 driver on it
If not then I've asked RM previously about stuff and I dont think documentation
would be a problem. As a general rule if you are presented a card with an
I/O an IRQ and no shared memory try the NE2000 driver on it when you are
in doubt. It normally works.
