  Thanks for that, Gary.  The above link eventually led me to the right
solution.  Basically, the BIOS had assigned the same interrupt to the SCSI
and Ethernet PCI controllers. (bah, stupid BIOSes :).

  Anyway, just going into the BIOS config, clearing out all resource
configuration data, and rebooting did the trick.  IRQs were re-assigned at
bootup, this time correctly :).
