Dec Tulip LAN card, ne2000 and 2.0.31-3

I am having a small problem with 2.0.30-3 on a Pentium system...
I have a ne2000 clone card set up as eth1 and a Dec Tulip LAN card
set up as eth0. The Tulip card has never been used. My network is
all 10base-2. However, it is configured into the kernel and the
network for future use.

When I started using 2.0.31-3, the ne2000 card stopped being
recognized by the kernel at boot time. Both LAN card drivers are
compiled as part of the kernel, not as modules. If I back down to
the 2.0.30-2 kernel, or compile the 2.0.30-3 kernel without the
Dec Tulip driver, the ne2000 card works just fine.

Any ideas?
