Summary:  Support for 3com Mini-PCI 3c556B CardBus adapter

Original Submission:  I was trying to use pxegrub to perform a diskless boot of 
an IBM Thinkpad T20 laptop, but I discovered that the built-in Ethernet 
hardware (3Com 3c556B Mini-PCI) was not supported by the GRUB.  I compared the 
Linux 3c59x driver with the GRUB 3c90x driver, and came up with a simple patch 
to support the 3c556B.  I can vouch that it works for me on my T20.

Since this patch adds support for more hardware and changes so little, I 
suggest applying it.  Thanks!

(You might be wondering why anybody would want to boot a diskless laptop.  
Think "automated OS installation".)
