Use the ne 1000/2000 driver and set the io and irq in the options line. ie
irq=1- and iobase=0x300.
It looks like you are using the pci driver not the isa driver. the isa
drive is in the pick list as ne1000/2000 isa card.
Next make user you have use the dos linksys setup tool to set the card to
the io address and irq address. If you dont have the disk you can get it
from www.linksys.com. Dont forget to set the topllolgy , ie ehternet , thin
coasx or thick ethernet ect..
You may need to play with the irq and io base address a while. If you have
windows on it , set it up under windows than use the same settings under
