Hi gang...

Just bought a new box for DAW stuff..

Got MDK 10.0 all installed and updated...Got all the cool apps installed
and working ok.

The ASUS mobo is an A7V8X-MX SE with Athalon +2500. It runs an Award
Pheonix Bios which is not as extensive on options as some of my other

This mobo has only 3 PCI slots and 1 AGP. It's a mini form factor case
and board. I have shuffled the card from slot to slot, stopped the
kernel loading the USB modules (*I don't need 'em anyway), messed with
all relevant BIOS settings (Assign IRQ's, APIC, etc) and I cannot get
this card (Delta 1010LT)onto an Interrupt lower than 10.

cat /proc/interrupts

0:	486023	XT-PIC	timer
1:	1990	XT-PIC	i8042
2:	0	XT-PIC	cascade
8:	1	XT-PIC	rtc
10:	0	XT-PIC	ICE1712
11:	14687	XT-PIC	eth0
12:	7242	XT-PIC	i8042
14:	11595	XT-PIC	ide0
NMI:	0
LOC:	486014
ERR:	546
MIS:	0

Any thoughts...I also tried the APIC options in LILO...

Is it really necessary to even have it on a lower Interrupt...I mean are
the benefits substantial or miniscul and not worthy of 20 hrs of boot /
halt / boot, etc...

Thanks in advance
