[Mitch says:] Following up to my own post... I've just tried a single port
NIC in the PCI slot - that combination boots fine. But, as I mentioned
before, it doesn't seem to matter the chipset or PCI bridge chip (tried two
different ones) - it just seems to be that 6th network interface...
I don't have a dual port NIC readily available or I'd test that, but again,
it just seems to be related to this base board - BUT it worked in 5.4.
I deleted most of the original email from the followup - if there is someone
out there who can help me narrow this down, please referr to the earlier
message, or contact me or look at the problem report - if there's anything
else I can do to help debug, I'm more than willing (I really need this to
work) - please let me know... Thanks!
