I have much the same setup, but I have an older 2.4.17 kernel (I'm
building 2.4.19 as we speak, though).

I have the following :

$ cat /etc/modutils/local.conf

# the Netgear EA-201 NE2k clone ISA ethernet adapter
alias eth0 ne
alias eth1 ne
options ne io=0x300,0x320

#options eth0 io=0x300 irq=11
#options eth1 io=0x320 irq=15

That tells the module which card is which interface.  I don't remember
if the last two lines would work or not (but they're there, so I'm
sharing them anyways in case you want to try it).


It took the computational power of three Commodore 64s to fly to the moon.
It takes at least a 486 to run Windows 95.
Something is wrong here.
