I am running 1.99.4 with a WD8013 as eth0.

On boot up, I get the message

wd.c:v1.10 9/23/94 Donald Becker (becker@cesdis.gsfc.nasa.gov)
eth0: WD80x3 at 0x300, 00 00 C0 59 F2 80 WD8013, IRQ 10, shared memory at 0xdc000-0xdffff.

But ifconfig gives

eth0 Link encap:10Mbps Ethernet HWaddr 00:00:C0:59:F2:80
inet addr: Bcast: Mask:
RX packets:315 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
TX packets:234 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0
Interrupt:10 Base address:0x310 Memory:dc000-e0000

So, one gives 0x300 as base address and the other as 0x310.
Don't notice any performance problem though

Just reporting.
