ISA network card

Hello. Heres my situation: I'm setting up an old 486 as a router/firewall for home network. The 2 network cards are dlink 220 isa. I am able to get the first(eth0) set up and connected to the net. But, am having problems configuring the second. First off, they both use the same driver. But, can only load the module once. Secondly, I am unable to determine the irq and base address of the seconf nic. From what I understand, I am to do a isapnpdump using isapnptools to have the system querrie the board for isa-pnp cards. I dont want this to be too wordy, so I'll leave it at that. Hope someone knows what I'm talking about
BTW, the sestem is debian woody.

Is it a pnp? Try "lspci -v" and post the results. You might also have to add something to /etc/modutils/aliases like:

alias eth0 <module>
alias eth1 <module>
options eth0 -o <module>-0 io=0x280 irq=5
options eth1 -o <module>-1 io=0x300 irq=7

And subsitute in the correct values. Then run "update-modules". The above example was paraphrased from the ethernet-howto on Have a look there aswell.
