I am running RedHat7.1 with 3 nic cards. Tulip compiled in kernel "no modules". Kernel 2.4.5

The problem I have is one card keeps setting itself to irq 14. I don't believe these cards will work correctly at irq 14. Can only ping myself. Replaced with a like nic card with same result.

How can I set eth2 to irq 7 (which is open), these are pci nic cards?

AFAIK, you can't "set" a PCI card. What you can do is to turn off PnP mode in your BIOS (if it has that option) and set things up to give Linux a decent chance to pick a good IRQ for the card. Like disabling the parallel port and/or not reserving it for ISA mode, or disabling some other unused device (PS/2 mouse, USB, COM port(s)).

The card might well work at IRQ14, but since that is normally used by the primary IDE controller I suspect that the resource conflict will keep it from working.
