Which driver have you compiled in? These cards use the 3c59x driver.

3c905b are PCI cards, so they are not PnP (at least, there is no option to
disable that). This was nescessary for the 3c509 cards).

If you are really talking about the 905 PCI and NOT the 509 ISA cards,
this should not be a problem.

If you really think this is the probnlem, do some standard PCI IRQ stuff.
First try with 1 card, switch cards in PCI slots and/r do some magic in
the BIOS.

  NT is the OS of the future. The main engine is the 16-bit Subsystem
  (also called MS-DOS Subsystem). Above that, there is the windoze 95/98
  16-bit Subsystem. Anyone can see that 16+16=32, so windoze NT is a
  *real* 32-bit system.
