Network interfaces problem

Hi,

I have problems with my SCO unix network interfaces.
Intel integrated adapter was failing, so I installed new one - 3COM adapter into free PCI slot.
Installed driver using SCO Software manager - successfully
Added new Network adapter using SCO Network configuration manager - successfully
after that I checked using ifconfig -a
there was some loopback interfaces and - net0 -intel interface, and net1 -3com interface.
So I thought that everything is OK and removed intel adapter using Network configuration manager, after that things went wrong:
ifconfig -a displays only loopback interfaces.
3com driver is installed, 3com network adapter is added(Network configuration manager), but ifconfig -a don't display it!!!

So I thought that it's hardware problem - booted knoppix from cd - my 3com adapter is autodetected, up and running!

After that I tried all 'dumb' ways - rebooted, reinstalled(driver), changed apapter pci slot...- result is the same -driver - OK, adapter(Network configuration manager) - OK, "ifconfig -a" - no entries. By the way devices net0 and net1 are present(I asume net1 is my 3com adapter).

I'm newbe in unix so maybe I missing some 'obvious' step ?
How to force my 3com adapter(net1 ?) to apear in ifconfig list, and force it function corectlly ?

thank you
Vilius

SYSTEMD-NETWORKD-WAIT-ONLINE.SERVICE(8) 		     systemd-networkd.service			   SYSTEMD-NETWORKD-WAIT-ONLINE.SERVICE(8)

NAME
systemd-networkd-wait-online.service, systemd-networkd-wait-online - Wait for network to come online SYNOPSIS
systemd-networkd-wait-online.service /lib/systemd/systemd-networkd-wait-online DESCRIPTION
systemd-networkd-wait-online is a one-shot system service that waits for the network to be configured. By default, it will wait for all links it is aware of and which are managed by systemd-networkd.service(8) to be fully configured or failed, and for at least one link to gain a carrier. OPTIONS
The following options are understood: -i, --interface= Network interface to wait for before deciding if the system is online. This is useful when a system has several interfaces which will be configured, but a particular one is necessary to access some network resources. This option may be used more than once to wait for multiple network interfaces. When used, all other interfaces are ignored. --ignore= Network interfaces to be ignored when deciding if the system is online. By default, only the loopback interface is ignored. This option may be used more than once to ignore multiple network interfaces. --timeout= Fail the service if the network is not online by the time the timeout elapses. A timeout of 0 disables the timeout. Defaults to 120 seconds. SEE ALSO
