What card parameters do you mean? Specifying io address and irq number did
not help me with my card. The problem with my card is also that the kernel
thinks it is a ne1000. The mentioned patch solves just that and since I
compile support for the card into the kernel, I do not have to specify any
parameters (except during kernel configuration ofcourse) to have it work.

Modifying ne.c is exactly what the patch does too, by the way.
