You can find out the address for your first card by going through your log
files from previous boot-ups, but other than that it's not so easy to find
out these details from an ISA nonPnP device (which I'm assuming it is,
because most PCI devices have addresses much higher than 0x300)
However you can ask the kernel to autoprobe both cards by adding the line:

append="ether=0,0,eth0 ether=0,0,eth1"
