Thanks for the input! Glad to hear I'm not the only one
In my case, both the SCSI and NIC are integrated on the motherboard, so I
cannot really move them around... :)
Also, as I mentioned, I tried a de0 (PCI card, not onboard, and it
literally stopped the machine). Is the de0 driver also a problem?
