[plug] Setting up...

Ok, I have a bunch of problems with my nice new Linux (Debian) box,
which I hope someone will be good enough to help me with.
1. The network card kills serial ports. I have a 3Cem Etherlink III
(3c509) ISA card. It's jumperless and when I plug it in, my serial
ports just die. Suddenly, when I put it in, I can't get to my modem,
so wvdial just s***s itself - so no mail.... :( I have (temporarily)
put wingate on my windows PC, and am proxying the net connections,
but that's obviously not an ideal solution. The mouse also goes the
same way, which makes X pretty damn useless. I got the 3c509 setup
and diagnostics programs off the net, and tried changing settings for
the card, but doesn't seem to have worked. I had similar problems
with RH 6.1 with the same card.
2. Mail transport. I'm using my Linux box to read mail (as would
any reasonable person...) I want to put on an SMTP relay that waits
to send mail out until I check my mail with a cron job at midnight.
Can someone point me in the right direction?
Ummm... that's probably it for now. Happy easter everyone, and
thanks in advance.
