Does that machine have any ISA cards?  Maybe there is a conflict
somewhere, or maybe you can tell the card to use a different IRQ.
(ISTR setting the two tulip NICs I used to have to different IRQs with
kernel 2.4;  I did it solely for performance)

On an old (ISA-only, no PCI) machine I had a conflict between a newer
ISA PnP NIC that decided to assume the same IRQ as an old
jumper-configured sound/cdrom card.  The NIC could send, but not
receive.  When I removed the sound/cdrom card the NIC worked just
fine.  (I still need to go through all the jumpers on the sound card
and change its setting)
