I've read some people had a lot of PCI cards installed and had IRQ sharing
& USB problems, which arise from AGP being shared with Slot 1 and another
slot being shared with the USB controller.  I haven't had enough PCI cards
to warrant such a problem, have you?  Any work arounds?  Some have
mentioned that the Abit did a better job at IRQ sharing, allocating shared
IRQs only when there aren't any free.  I've read up on the board, and I
like what I see except there's an ISA slot on the Abit board.
