Accton Cheetah 10/100 problems

I have big trouble getting my Accton 10/100 Cheetah PCI NIC detected by
RedHat 5.1 with kernel 2.0.34.
Here are some data :

My /etc/conf.modules looks like this:

alias eth0 tulip
options tulip debug=6 options=0

Running 'insmod tulip' i get the following error :

tulip.o: init_module: Device or resource busy

My /proc/pci file looks like this :

PCI devices found:
 Bus  0, device  12, function  0:
  Ethernet controller: Unknown vendor Unknown device (rev 16).
  Vendor id=1113. Device id=1211.
  Medium devsel.  IRQ 11.  Master Capable.  Latency=32.  Min
Gnt=32.Max Lat=64.
     I/O at 0xd800.
     Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe6000000.

I have checked the /proc/ioports and /proc/interrupts that there is no other
device using the I/O or interrupt.
I notice that the vendor and device is unknown. Something missing in pci.h
Probably because the vendor and device is unknown, i must use the -p d800
option with the diag utility so that it can find the card :

# tulip-diag -a -e -e
Unable to find a Tulip card in /proc/pci

# tulip-diag -p d800 -a -e -e

 ID CRC 0x91 (vs. 0xc7), complete CRC 8310ce98.

Is there a way to tell modprobe (in /etc/conf.modules) what I/O address the
card is at ?
I have tried  options tulip options=0 debug=6 io=0xd800
but it will not buy it.
