module required for net card switches on reboot

I'm having a problem with a network card on an Internet gateway I'm setting up. The system has two network cards. Eth0 works fine, but eth1 is giving me problems. The card is a Linksys Etherfast 10/100 and was setup during installation using the tulip module. After a reboot (hard or soft) the card only works using the e100 module. After another reboot the card will again only work with the tulip module. Not the card since another Etherfast card operated in the same fashion.

I'm out of ideas. Maybe someone could enlighten me....

Redhat 9 - uptodate

alias eth0 e100
alias usb-controller usb-uhci
#alias eth1 e100
alias eth1 tulip
