asus P-IN-100 ISDNLink + RedHat 9.0

i have spent the last 2 hours looking for an answer to my question, and can't find it. here goes the tale of my woes:

- my system reports my card correctly in pci device listings (in kde control center sytem info), along with irq setting (5) and i/o address (9000 - 9007).
1. question: is the i/o address reported as hexadecimal as i'm assuming despite lack of any specific statement concerning format, they just seem to progress like hex

- network configuration (redhat-config-network), in hardware tab, as i added the card. gave the correct irq, but the wrong i/o address. the i/o address field was greyed, so i couldn't very well change it.
2. question: where did the software get the i/o address different than reported by the system? and was i right that this was why it couldn't be "activated"?

- i removed all references i could find to the card and restarted the machine. now i could change the i/o address field in hw tab to correspond w/ the one reported by the system. still couldn't activate and, being a newbie i didn't know how else to start network services, rebooted again.

- at the reboot, ISDNmodules failed to start. this was a new one, since it used to start okay before.
3. question: what the hell am i doing wrong... should i download asus' own drivers from their site (linux offered the right-seeming alternative for me to choose from).

4. question: how do i get the isdnmodules to start again? by removing my card again from network config (haven't done that yet)?

5. question: how do i go about getting the driver files (dss1_divert.o, hisax.o and isdn.o) to be a part of the system? Do I copy the files to a diskette and boot from setup cdrom, stating "linux dd" at boot prompt and what happens then.

- sorry if some of these questions seem inane to you gurus, but i'm a newbie, and my learning curve is not as steep as it used to be 25 years ago. i've read manuals for three weeks (rhl installation guide finished, getting started guide well past the section of network setup, a local publisher's "general" linux book) but somehow i'm getting a whole lot of stuff i'm already familiar with, while some of the sophisticated manuals i've thumbed seem to tell me to do things i have no idea about...

sorry, didn't mean to rant - thanx beforehand for your help!
