This is more related to a Linux list but let me and a
couple of lines.
I'm Using 2*3c509 NIC's in a Linux box, just be sure to add
an append line to your lilo.conf. with the correct addresses
of your cards. (mine's look like: append="ether Y,XXX,eth0 ether
Z,WWW,eth1". Y,XXX,Z,WWW are of course the irqs and io addrss ).
