OK, I have seen it all now. I have seen machines where I had to swap
cards between slots to avoid IRQ sharing issues. I thought that was
strange. But this is different.
I had forgotten that I removed the PVR-500 card (thanks to Comcrap, that
card is pretty much useless now). I put it back in, so that there are
now cards in every slot, and poof! Everything works. I have never before
seen a machine that won't work right unless every slot is full, but
there you go. I guess the PVR-500 isn't completely useless )-:
