        Sometimes compiling support directly in (as a non-module) is not
the best idea.  I don't remember if you said if you used modules or not. 
Is the ISA card PNP?  I have had trouble with them.  You may need to
specify parameters to the ne module to get it to recognize the card.  You
may need to use the isapnp tools to get the ISA card to work, if it is
PNP.  Another option is sell the ISA card and get another PCI tulip card
(hopefully the same model as you currently have).  I have a machine here
with two PCI tulip cards in it. It works fine and LINUX detects them both.

                                Hope this helps,
