Unhappy NIC Cards Not Working

I have just installed suse 8.1 and am trying to get connected to the Internet via my cable provider. I have two network cards, one onboard (sis900) which is used for the WAN the other pci (Realtek) which is used for the LAN. They get picked up during installation but both fail to start on bootup. I get the message 'device or resource busy' for both cards. I have done the usual and checked the modules.conf file and is correct and have checked the ifcfg-eth0, ifcfg-eth1 files as well.
I have read some documentation from my provider and I am suppose to get my WAN IP from their DHCP, and I have set my LAN card to a static IP of Is the card not configured properly? Are they not supportd by suse 8.1?
I know the NICs work because I use to have this same setup under Windows.

If anyone can help me I would appriciate it.
