If they're both PCI devices then it shouldn't matter because the PCI design
allows for shared interrupts. I'd have a gut feeling that sharing IRQs on a
modem and network card wouldn't be absolutely the best configuration but

Some PCI BIOSes will allow you to manipulate assignment of IRQs to slots.
If OTOH one or both of your devices is ISA you'll have to modify one of them
by using either jumpers or a program delivered with the hardware to change
the IRQ it uses, and if you're using software, it's likely that you'll need
to remove one of the devices while programming the other.
