isa-cards need proper irq and io parameter to work
if you still have your redhat around take a look at
to find the needed values

on Debian "modconf" is the nice tool to configure 
kernel-modules BTW

ah and you will see nothing in /proc/pci 

if the 3c509 still dont work you have to use a dos-config tool to setup the
card first. (no joke ;)
you basicly have to set these ioport's and irq's manualy with this tool
vs. "PNP-OS".
(if this card was never used with linux before try this first)

I have both cards running here.
if I recall correct I had to use the dos-tool for the 3c509 
(no special setup in linux later)
for the ne no tool was needed but the correct parameters for the
module. I just tryed some 
(here it's io=0x300)
