I've got a Genius ISA NE2000. After installing it, Harddrake did not recognize it. After having a look at isapnp, I found that I had no free IRQ to assign to the card.
IRQ five is actually occupied by an internal winmodem that I do not use under linux, so I forced such IRQ to my ethernet card.
Anyway, harddrake still doesn't recognize the card, and puts it into "Other Peripherals").
How can I make it work? Is there a way to force the use of a device driver?

Just for completeness I post here the pnpdump of my card:

# Release isapnptools-1.22
# This is free software, see the sources for details.
# This software has NO WARRANTY, use at your OWN RISK
# For details of the output file format, see isapnp.conf(5)
# For latest information and FAQ on isapnp and pnpdump see:

I forgot one of the most important things: I've got Mandrake 7.2 installed, with kernel 2.2.17 (seems I also can't get kernel 2.4 working... 8( )

You can force another IRQ via the DOS Disk that is shipped with your card...
