RE: two card clash

I might have the answer. The card is 10/100 and the antenna interface is base10. Could it be the driver for the card does not recognize the base 10?

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
my opinion)
