Ok, exactly which driver is that (3c5??), and what did you tell the module

Was it something like:

insmod 3c5whichever.o io=0x0230,0x0240 irq=5,6

where card one is at io 0x0230, and irq 5; and the other is at 0x0240, and
irq 6 (I don't know if all modules can accept multiple values, or the
leading zero after the "0x", but ideally they should). If that dosn't
work, you can always use the -o parameter to insmod to allow multiple
instances of the driver, like so:

insmod 3c5whichever.o io=0x0230 irq=5 -o some_significant_name
insmod 3c5whichever.o io=0x0240 irq=6 -o some_other_significant_name

where the names are signficant to you (and will be in six months time
too (try 3c5whichever-eth0, 3c5whichever-eth1 ...) ;).
