two card clash
Corel Linux - Intel box
I installed the OS with one rtl8139 netowrk card in it, the OS found the card and loaded the right module which was assigned in the /etc/conf.modules file. The network functioned and running an ifconfig command revealed eth0 was assigned properly and all the parameters were correct.
I closed down and added another rtl8139 card. I booted and there was no network cards in ifconfig, no networking functioning.
How do I avoid this problem? Is it an IRQ problem? I thought PCI avoided this.
