    You kinda missed the directions:
    1)Download either the .arm file or isl3890 file
    2)rename the .arm file to isl3890 if you got the arm
    3)copy the isl3890 to /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware
    4)
    Code:
    ifconfig eth1 up
    dhclient eth1
    -lakerdonald

    dear donald
    thx a lot.
    I knew I allmost had it, but was too tired of trying.

    eth-1 is up now.

    are there any howtos for filling out the network form for wireless adaptors?

    greetings
    winter
