Ah, I see. Your card is not EtherExpress Pro but ExtherExpress
16. Note that their names are similar but they are quite different.

As EtherExpress 16 is based on i82586, the drivers for other
i82586-based cards might work, if you're lucky. For example, 3c507 is
i82586-based. If they don't work, it would be necessary to write a
driver for eexpress.
