Old ethernet cards

as I am approaching the finishing of LFS on what is to be my firewall/gateway 486, I ran into a little problem.

The machine has two old 10M ISA ethernet cards, and I would like to know if anyone could tell me how I might go about finding out the interupts/IO ports or whatever I need to set up the module for them. (Not sure what they are, i think Eagle/Microdyne, but would have to check)

Any help with this and/or determining which card is which would be helpful.

The cards may be a NE2000 Compatible card.

Check the interupts and ioports file in /proc directory. and load ne module with proper irq and ioport.

insmod 8391
insmod ne io=0x300 irq=9

run the diagnastic utilty for the card and get the io and IRQ
