    Things to remembed about NE2000 cards, the drivers dont supprt pulg and play so you have to set the IRQ and IO using either jumpers or a DOS based utility program.

    Then when you get back to linux you go give it something like this:

    insmod ne irq=0x300

    Or whatever the IRQ is that you give the card.

    Just some tips, hoe this helps.
