You're kidding, right?

So, you mean that the Amiga4000 has no PCI? When I bought an Infinitiv tower
for my A1200, there were instructions which told me that EVEN THIS tower
model(zorro-version) had 2 PCI:s. So you mean that the Infinitiv
manufucturer have lied? Strange... Since I'm definitely not a expert in
hardware I'm going to check this up.
