Hopefully the isapnp methods described in later replies will work for you.
If they don't, be careful with the IRQ selection.  In my experience modprobe
will bomb if the IO address is wrong, but will 'work' if the IRQ  is
wrong.  You will, however, get some weird error messages when trying to
ping or whatever.  So if resorting to trial and error, do the IO address
then the IRQ (there's not too many IRQs anyway...) :)
