NIC IRQ conflict
I have installed a new MB & CPU (ASUS A7N266-VM & Athlon XP1600), and
among the problems is that both my NICs are assigned irq 5 (they used
to be at 10 and 12 on the old board). Consequently I have no network.
The /etc/interfaces man page makes no mention of irq assignments,
though ifconfig certainly allows for that. I cannot dynamically
re-assign the irq (tried that: SIOCSIFMAP: operation not supported).
Is there a way I can force irq assignment on bootup?
