3c90x driver problems and module-info file

I have an Intel system with two built-in Ethernet ports (eepro100).  I 
also have a 3COM 3c90x card in the same system.  I am using the 3COM 
(3c90x) and one of the built-in ports.  However, the 3COM port doesn't 
always come up after booting.  It comes up sometimes.  I've run "depmod 
-a" but that didn't seem to change anything. I only have aliases for the 
two ports I'm using.  Do I need to add another alias in modules.conf? 
 It's rather frustrating to have to reboot several times just to get it 
working.  It seems like a driver load order problem to me but I'm not 
sure what I should do.  What can I do to diagnose this?

ALSO, does anyone know what the /boot/module-info file does?  It came 
with RedHat 7.x but I don't think it's part of the kernel distribution. 
 I'm wondering if it's related to my problem or not and just plain 
curious as to what it is used for.
