Question Network Cards don't work with Radeon 8500dv all-in-wonder

Recently, after installing a Radeon 8500dv all-in wonder video card, I realized that my network cards failed to function. When I tried to activate the cards, the DCHP ip address lookup failed on both adapters. One of them timed out, and the other one froze up my system (Red Hat Fedora, kernel 2.4)

After this, I replaced the video card with my old one, and everything worked fine. I have already tried to fix this by the following methods --
+Reinstalling Radeon 8500 drivers from ATI
+Changing IRQ settings in BIOS so network card doesn't share IRQ
+Installed drivers for TV in from Gatos
+Switched around network cards in PCI slots

Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated. I'm all out of ideas and I enjoy this card otherwise. Thanks.

you have done everything i would have done.

in one last act of desperation i would now assume its the kernels fault and download the latest kernel (is it still 2.6.1) and install that. hope whatever bug that causes this has been fixed.

On your suggestion, I did try this as my last resort, and to my surprise, it worked! Thanks
