I have two identical network cards which I want to use in may laptop (beta
hw list #12).
But if I insert both only the first on will work. Here are some furhter
details:
[root@soliton gerald]# cardctl ident
Socket 0:
  product info: "TAMARACK", "Ethernet", "A", "004743118001"
  function: 6 (network)
Socket 1:
  product info: "TAMARACK", "Ethernet", "A", "004743118001"
  function: 6 (network)
 
On the card it says Surecom EtherPerfect EP-427.

If I insert the first card it works fine. If I insert the seond I get:
-------------------------

Probabably not worth to investigate further.
