Ubuntu 8.10, force certain driver to certain NIC


I'm having two network cards in my dell inspiron 530s.

One is an intel pro 100 (onboard), other is intel pro 1000.

I want to use specific drivers for specific cards.

I'm running ubuntu 8.10 with patched linux kernel 2.6.22.

How can I FORCE the intel card to use e100.ko? (or another driver that works with that kernel version)

I know it works with this driver, but after
Code:
 modprobe e100
the card is still unclaimed in
Code:
lshw -c network
If I do
Code:
 modprobe e1000
the second card (1000) gets claimed instead of the 100 card (which also should work fine with the e1000 driver).

Without doing any 'modprobing', are both modules (e100 & e1000), loaded by default after a fresh bootup?
Run command: lsmod after reboot.

Suggest : Change the "Intel pro 1000" to a non Intel card.

Then no more mix up with modules.
