Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

Hardware Conflict

I just upgraded my kernel to 2.4.21. I have problem with my hardware. It seem my token ring and audio card conflict, so I can use my sound, but my token ring is disabled.
Btw, I compile these two as kernel. In my previous kernel, 2.4.18, I compiled it as module and both worked fine.
Here some message :
PCI : Found IRQ 11 for device 00:0d.0
IRQ routing conflict for 00:07.5, have IRQ 9 want IRQ 11
PCI cache line size set incorrectly (32 bytes) by BIOS/FW, correcting to 64
tr0 : IBM TR Auto LANStreamer. I/O at dc00, MMIO at d8826000, using IRQ 11
VIA 686A/8233/8235 audio driver 1.9.1-ac2
PCI : Found IRQ 11 for device 00:07.5
IRQ routing conflict for 00:07.5, have IRQ 9 want IRQ 11

Should I compile these two as module ? Which one is better, kernel or module ?
And how can I solve this problem ? Thanks.

Really, the "better" inbetween kernel and module matters so little these days that it doesn't matter. If compiling both as modules doesn't do the trick, then you might be able to hand assign IRQs in BIOS. The Token Ring driver may be a little buggy in that I bet it hasn't been worked on in a while.

I would just disable use of irq 11 in bios if you used few devices, on my system though it would not work, to many devs.

Before this, kernel 2.4.18, I use LANStreamer driver from linux, and ALSA for my driver. In kernel 2.4.21, my audio card (AC'97 -> VIA 82C686) is supported so I just use this driver. Is it matter ?
If I want to uninstall these drivers, do I have to compile the kernel again ?
