card. Does it detect the card and then fail to find the IRQ? Do you
have a PnP BIOS? If so then try flipping the cards IRQ, which I set to
10, from "PnP/PCI" to "Legacy ISA". This fixed it in windows (3.11)
and Linux (2.2.1 but it should fix most other kernels). [Me and my 486
running Linux detected the card first time when I rebooted, but the
486 is a tad slower and showing signs of multiple lethal hardware
problems at the moment].
Nothing will get fixed before early in April because I will be the
other side of the pond pretending to do a spot of quantum computing.
