I had a similar problem - my NE2000 clone PnP card is set up for IRQ 10
under Windoze95 manually in order to get some of the network drivers to
see it (mainly under DOS sessions for games). The card on its own wants
IRQ 12, which is where it shows up under Linux, so I have the same card
manually configured for IRQ 10 under Windoze95 and automagically (more
like autotragically if you ask me) configured for IRQ 12 under Linux (IRQ
10 under Linux seems to be occupied by the IDE interface on my GUS PnP).
THis seems to work. Now if only I could get WinNT going... - it seems to
be seeing the GUS as a network card - hopefully Gravis' NT drivers
(promised for this spring) will help.
Hope this is of use...
