Description of problem:
Installed FC2 Test 2 with a internal tulip network chip enabled, but
as it doesn't work (a strange problem for some Compaq Presario 56xx
computers) I decided I should insert a natsemi based network card.
I halted the computer and inserted the new network card, and disabled
the internal chip. 

Under the boot sequence I was asked to remove support for the tulip
card which I did, but when using system-config-network to enable the
natsemi based network card. 
I selected the Device tab and pressed New, I got information about
adding a device for my DP83815 based network card.
I then tried to Activate the new device, but it complained about
problems initialize a tulip device.
I tryed to remove the eth0 line from modprobe.conf, but it did not help. 
But when I changed the line in modpropbe.conf from:
alias eth0 tulip
alias eth0 natsemi
I was able to Activate the device.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

hmm, if you removed the card using kudzu, then kudzu should have
removed the alias from modules.conf...
