I have a Linksys 10/100 PCI card in my Linux/Win 95 dual boot machine. The
card works fine when I boot windows so I know the card is OK. I have had no
luck whatsoever getting the network going under Linux (Redhat 5.2). The
machine can't even ping its own IP. I always get the message "Resource
temporarily unavailable".

Judging from the output of ifconfig, it looks like my card is using IRQ 16.
When I have Windows booted up, device manager says the card is using IRQ 10.
How can I specify that I want the card to use IRQ 10 under RH 5.2?
