    Can't you permanently set the new changes for the card in DarkConnect/DrakX?

    Good luck

    so it wont even boot?

    use a resuce/install cd to edi tthe /etc/modules.conf file on yoru hard drive, comment ou teh line for eth0 so it doesnt load at boot. then run the config tools to set it up properly
