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).

Good.

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).
