RE: two card clash
hmmm. still very confused. According to dmesg both cards were assigned properly, ther's just a line for each assigning eth0 and eth1 respectively (can't include as it's not on the network, and there's no floppy drive). However, ifconfig shows no eth0 or eth1.
What do I have to do to get these cards installed now?
Thanks for all your patience, guys.

Subject: Re: two card clash
it would be helpful if you included output from dmesg, and also did you
try to insmod the rtl8139 module manually ? if it loads(with or without
errors) run dmesg again and see what the kernel says.
i have run dual 3com 3c905s and dual rtl8139s with no trouble. there is
the matter of the PCI bus, if you are installing a 2nd card after the
system is configured and it is in a lower pci slot, the system would
detect it first making the 2nd card eth0, but thats not a linux problem(in
