[LAU] How to move devices to specific IRQ's ?

I'm facing similar crappy IRQ settings on my Thinkpad R61 here as 
Svend-Erik described - my cardbus shares it's interrupt with the 
I spent 2 nights now to play around with the (only available) settings 
in bios, which was to adjust pcibusses from preadjusted "11" to anything 
else and finally "automatic" - without any success. I tried to switch 
off APIC, ACPI, I tried pci=assign_busses - nothing changed.
I wonder if it would make sense then to spend the money for a device 
like E-MU 1616 or even RME Multiface...
Things seem to be a little better on firewire - the 1394 only shares 
it's interrupt with a unused usbbus and the also unused onbordsound - 
would it be probably the better way to go for a, lets say, Presonus Firepod?
I'm sorry to further stress that exasperating hardware item but it's 
really a pain to find a solution - there is a huge amount of info out 
there in the web - but finding something which really leads one further 
can be a punishment.
thanks a lot for any hints
