Well, just taking a quick look at, I came up with
these sites which you may or may have not visited..  They are for Linux,
NetBSD, and OpenBSD, respectively..

The Mac IIcx is listed as working, so your only trouble would be that
Ethernet card..  Linux is probably the most likely to support it..

The MacLinux webpage says that NS8390-based Ethernet cards should work
(but might not..)  Apparently, no work has been done on any others.
