Simple answer is no, TokenRing is a IBM technology, you will need a MAU (like a router for a normal 10/100 cards), this is hard to come by now plus expensive (I think we had a few that used as door stoppers).

Your best bet is to get a cheap normal 10/100 PCI network card for a few pounds and use that instead.
