some modules: init_module: Device or resource busy

I got an old PC4ND Siemens laptop, and I try to install linux on it. I
also got a stationbox (dockingstation) which allows to put in two
isacards, so I put in a ne2000 compliant card. At last I got an external
CD-Rom drive, a Multiport, paralell-port with an KINGBYTE KB-LCCM-93X
KBIC 9526 chipset.

Now, I downloaded the current disks for debian 2.0.36 (rescue,driver and
the base system) and installed that mini-system. This is working right

I need to connect the laptop to the cdrom or to the network to install a
normal system now.

I tried:
modprobe ne          
modprobe ne io=0x300          (I got the info from the DOS software for
modprobe ne io=0x300,irq=15    that card. Made a DOS-boot-disk an got a
modprobe ne io=0x300 irq=15    look at it)

but all I got was:

ne.c: No ne*000 card found at i/o = 0x300
/lib/modules/2.0.36/net/ne.o init_module: Device or resource busy

I tried two ne2000 cards, one is working right well in my other

After that I tried to get the paralellport CD-rom running.
I loaded the paride modul, the the kbic modul - so far so good.

I tried:
modprobe pcd                    (I am not sure about the values, so I
                                 autoprobed here)

but all I got, was:

pcd: pcd version 1.05s, major 46, nice 0
pcd0: kbic 1.01, Kingbyte KBIC-951A at 0x378, mode 5 (EPP-32), delay 1
pcd: No CDrom drive found
/lib/modules/2.0.36/misc/pcd.o: init_module: Device or resource busy
paride: Device or resource busy

Got anyone an idea what I should try next?
Thanks in advance
