tell the bios that that IRQ is an ISA irq and the system should re-map
to another irq. Another way, is to move the "other" hardware to another
slot. many motherboards have slots that have shared IRQs with other slots
and/or onboard devices and it is impossible to change them. usually
the first and last PCI slots are configured this way, so use them last.
check your MB manual for details.
