Rule #1.  dmesg output is always helpful.  Kernel conf file would be

I'm using an ep and an ed in my notebook without problems, simultaneously 
(it's my firewall/gateway).  Make sure you have "device ed" in your kernel 
conf, and not "device ed0 blahblahblah etc."  If you do it the second way, 
you'll only get one device enabled by the kernel, and hence the error 
message you're seeing.

It could be something else, but this is common.
