Ah, yes. We haven't talked about GNU Mach yet.

Here is what is required: As GNU Mach doesn't support such boot time
options, you need to hack the kernel, but it isn't hard:

In gnumach-1.2/linux/dev/drivers/net/Space.c, you'll find this:

/* In Mach, by default allow at least 2 interfaces.  */
#ifdef MACH
#ifndef ETH1_ADDR
# define ETH1_ADDR 0
#ifndef ETH1_IRQ
# define ETH1_IRQ 0

You need to fill those in.
If you want to override everything, you do this:

#ifdef MACH
static struct device eth1_dev = {
    "eth1", 0, 0, 0, 0, ETH1_ADDR, ETH1_IRQ, 0, 0, 0, &eth2_dev, ethif_probe
static struct device eth1_dev = {
    "eth1", 0,0,0,0,0xffe0 /* I/O base*/, 0,0,0,0, &eth2_dev, ethif_probe };

static struct device eth1_dev = {

    "eth1", 0, 0, 0, 0, 0x300, 10, 0, 0, 0, &eth2_dev, ne_probe

This will FORCE the probe for a NE2000 card (and no other second chard is
recognized) at the specified address.

I think you should be able to specify ETH1_ADDR and _IRQ at compile time,
but I can't find it.
