I've got only one card in it, which seems to share IRQ11 w/ the rest
of the PCI devices. This is normal, I believe?! It's recognized fine
and the box can ping itself, tho hangs on doing diagnostics on the
card. But hey, windohs hangs every so often, so I don't find it all
that mysterious... ;-)
I will definitely try some other cables, as also suggested by some
other folks here.
