lspci gives that the card is on IRQ 10. This is also what the boot up
message suggests. So, it definitively isn't on irq 4

It is indeed irq 4.

I've tried, but no changes.

It's not mine :) and it has some trouble with the monitors we have around
here. It's fairly old, and that probably explains it. Basically, I can't use
it as it's not mine :)

As I said, I don't know what might be wrong with this card. At present, I
restored my old card, and I'm using X windows to reply to your message.
Nothing at all has changed, and everything is working fine. I was wondering
if the motherboard might be to blame. Basically, in old motherboards, you
needed some hardware on the first PCI slot. Since the card is too big, I can
only place it on the last slot. I placed the sound card (which I'm not using
or anything near that), and the problem persists. I'll try to use another
gfx card that I know works well...
And I know that some S3 had problems with ttyS2 and stuff like that, but
not with ttyS0. Moreover, it runs flawlessly from Windows :-?
