3c509B (ISA) interrupt not assigned in 2.3.99p4-6

When I boot my machine with any kernel from 2.3.99pre4 to 2.3.99pre6, I
get the following driver message at bootup :

eth0: 3c509 at 0x300, 10baseT port, address XX XX XX XX XX XX, IRQ 10.

Which is the same message as the one I get when booting with 2.3.99pre3
(in which my problem does not appear).

However, using pre[4-6], my machine can't get an IP from my DHCP server
at boot up. After looking for the problem for a while, I came upon this
interesting discrepancy :

[bbehm@CERBERUS]$ cat /proc/interrupts
  0: 35237 XT-PIC timer
  1: 1277 XT-PIC keyboard
  2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
  5: 1 XT-PIC soundblaster
 12: 5381 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
 13: 1 XT-PIC fpu
 14: 1533 XT-PIC ide0
 15: 2346 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
ERR: 0

This is distressing because there is no IRQ 10 assigned to eth0, which
there is in 2.3.99pre3.

I've seen a lot of posts about PCI interrupt problems here, so I thought
there might be a conflict : I went into my (Award) BIOS and turned
changed IRQ 10 from "PCI/PnP ISA" to "Legacy ISA".

My NIC is not in PnP mode.

ps - apologies for the HTML version of this message that I sent
previously. My mistake.
