Does not recognize netcard.

I installed Linux Red Hat 4.1 on a Pentium 120. Everything works fine except that the system can't recognize a NE2000 compatible netcard.  I know the card works, because, on the same computer on a DOS partition, I can access a Novell network with this netcard.

When installing Linux, I got prompts asking me for the card base address and its IRQ. I entered the same I use on the Novell side, but it said it can't recognize the card.

How can I access the netcard configuration segment in Linux after installation? And, what should I try to make the netcard work with Linux?

To change the configuration of your netcard edit the file /etc/conf.modules (if you're using a modular kernel), or /etc/lilo.conf otherwise (I think...).
In the first case look for a line like

options ne io=xxx irq=yy

that's what you have to change.

A reason why your card isn't recognized may be that it uses the same IRQ as another device (under linux, all devices must have their own IRQs). In that case you have to reconfigure your network card.
