The motherboard is an Intel N440BX running 2 PIII 600MHZ (feel the 
power). FreeBSD version is 5.4

32 bit PCI not sure if they are 33/66Mhz as I dont have the manual to 
hand. Now the card is in the bottom PCI slot which is the only place it 
would fit becuase of the 7006-2 above it and the way that the standard 
IDE connectors are mounted.

Would moving the top card to the bottom slot and putting the 9500S-12 in 
the top slot screw with FreeBSD in anyway or will it just accept the 
changes and keep on going? I know windows has an issue with this and 
wants you to reinstall drivers and such like if you move cards around.
