One thing that may help you out is the pciutils package. They will give
you nice formatted data on what is plugged into the pci bus. Very usefull
for diagnosing problems with any pci hardware, as well as figuring out
what i/o addresses devices are being given.
Also, just a nit to pick: NIC = "Network Interface Card", so the phrase
"NIC cards" would translate to "Network Interface Card cards". You can
pluralize nicely just by saying "NICs". Sorry, just a pet peeve of mine;
right up there with mispellling ;-)
