Well, I know that NE2000 and NE2000 PCI are two different animals in the
kernel, so make sure you have the right ones. Also, with NE2000 the
kernel will autoprobe certain IOs - 240, 260, 280, 300, 320, IIRC. So
make sure it's on one of those, if you can configure it.

8029 is a supported card. I had some 8019s that worked but as ne2000.
There may be separate drivers for the 8029s. Check xconfig and the
