Why is that? Does this apply to other alphas as well? I have a PC164LX
and I've found that the only PCI card that works in any of the slots
is my video card. I've tried a Soundblaster sound card and a 3com NIC
and each ones hangs the whole machine when I try to load drivers.

Lightning took out my external modem one time so I figured that maybe
the PCI slots got killed too somehow.
