You could try to find 3Com 100Mbit ISA card.

Yes I've tried that but as I was telling before the mobo of this pc is
as old as the rest of it, meaning it does not support PnP. Another
problem is that it only has 2 PCI slots so rearrange them does not solve
anything (I've tried). Last night I was looking at the software provided
with my d-link card and it seams to me that all settings (IRQ DMA) are
assigned by bios. This is a real pain since it can handle one PnP card
but not 2. I read on d-link that the ne2k driver would work if u have
IRQ conflicts, then u can set all this with the OS instead, but Im not
sure how to do that with mono (BSD). Any suggestions? Besides buy a new
pc ;)
NIC's used:
D-link 530TX
RTL8139

A maybe obvious suggestion, but you have tried re-arranging the cards?

In some mobo you want to avoid the top PCI and the bottom PCI, as these
  often result in shared interrupts which unix-like systems dont like.

Sometimes the on-board peripherals also unexpectedly share IRQ's
