No ... As I've said in my first e-mail:

At least the range 1000-10FF (the 256 range needed by the card and actually used in
Windoze). I don't know if it conflicts with other devices ... I don't really know
whether the card is trying to use other range under Linux ... Well, in fact I installed
the driver in Windoze with the only purpose of checking possible hardware fails. I
suppose that I have to perform some C programming in order to print in the standard
error which is the i/o range that is trying to use the module aic7xxx (in fact, I have
located the precise point where this occurs, I think). But my obligations here at
university (research & teaching) don't let me to dedicate much time to this. So,
please, any help will be very, very appreciated. Perhaps, I have found a nasty bug ...
What do you think to this respect?

And if  there are some kernel-package-gurus out there, an easy (I suppose) question
(but whose answer I haven't found in the documentation):

Thank you very much in advance for your time and your patience, and your precious help.
