|James If they are isa then (informatical) you need 'isapnptools' and to do a isapnp dump.
Then a config of /etc/isapnp.conf is needed. There you chose the irq and the io(s)
of your cards. (uncomment these lines)
The isapnptools must be started at boot of course.
The rest is a config of your cards as eth0 and eth1.
