[Linux-aus] Network card problems

Hi, I am hoping somebody can help with this problem.
Have installed a netcard after installing Debian 3.3 and cannot get the  
system to use it.
Info centre-PCI lists the correct card,
info centre network interface lists,
netcard config returns "no supported network card",
insmod eepro (name of card driver) returns   
/lib/modules/2.4.24-xfs/kernel/drivers/net/eepro.o: init_
module: device or resource busy,
modinfo eepro lists the above filename
dmesg doesn't mention eth0,
cannot ping my firewall.
The card works OK with a fresh install of Debian,a Knoppix cd, or windows.
  Have Googled for an answer but nothing seems to work.
I think the answer may be very simple, but I am new to this and I am out  
of options.
