Hi Russell,
Maybe PnP got set up differently. Most cards (if you can actually identify 
them) have a DOS based setup utility which allows you to disable PnP and set 
IO and IRQ manually.
With cards costing so little nowadays you might be better off replacing it 
with something just to get the setup utility, drivers, etc.

The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating system

and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world.
