If you could show us how you were configuring ed[1,2] in your config file we
would probably be able to help you.

You possibly are using:

device ed1 at isa? port 0x280 net irq 5 iomem 0xd8000 vector edintr

This sets up ed1 for a ed* ISA card.  Thus when the system probe finds your
card, it assigns it as ed2, since PCI devices are automatically assigned to
the next ed* interface.

You should change you config file so that the device line looks as follows:

device    ed1

This will set it up so that the first ed* PCI card found is assigned to the
ed1 interface.
