IIRC, the kernel boot paramaters only work if the driver is compiled into the
kernel. If you are compiling it as a module (eg default Debian setup) you need
to edit /etc/conf.modules and add a line like:
``options 3c509 io=0xAAA,0xBBB irq=CC,DD''
where 0xAAA and CC are for eth0, and 0xBBB and DD are for eth1. Note that I'm
not certain about the specific parameters, you might want to read the driver
source if it dosen't work- alternatively, you could just recompile your kernel
with the 3c509 driver in the kernel instead of a module.
