here's three solutions for you...

1. try something like:

    modprobe ne io=0x240,0x280 irq=15,12

2. put the following in /etc/modules:

    ne io=0x240,0x280 irq=15,12

3. edit /etc/conf.modules and put in essentially the same information:

    alias eth0 ne
    alias eth1 ne
    options ne io=0x240,0x280 irq=15,12

I've used methods 1 & 2 on different machines and they work. I've never
actually used method 3 but it should work just as well as the other 2
