RedHat/IBM tkrng

I suppose you all remember me?!  I'm the guy with the token ring card
running RedHat 5.

Here's an update:

--'modprobe ibmtr.o' gives me:
/lib/modules/2.0.32/net/ibmtr.o: init_module: Device or resource busy

--'/sbin/ifconfig tr0 up' gives me:
SIOCSIFADDR: Operation not supported by device

--'/sbin/insmod /lib/modules/2.0.32/net/ibmtr.o' gives me:
/lib/modules/2.0.32/net/ibmtr.o: init_module: Device or resource busy

--'dmesg' gives me:
ibmtr: No adapters were found

--'/sbin/lsmod' gives me:
Module    Pages    Used by

(nothing else for that last one)

I think I found my problem...IRQ!  I've never setup an IRQ for the card.  I
thought I might be lucky and not have to, but I'm starting to think like a
Windows95 user if I do that!  I wonder if this is the reason that I don't
see any lights flashing on my card because the computer isn't talking to it
at all.  I previously thought that the lights should flash no matter what,
as long as the card was in a slot?

Any (more) ideas?  It might be the IRQs!  I'm trying to get a deal on a
token ring hub now...
