FYI The Stupid INT value - from a another list posting:
| pccardslot says that the card says it's on IRQ 255. In PCI-land, 255
| means "no such", i.e. not using an interrupt. But the c575b driver
| definitely expects this device to have an interrupt.
| See if you can do anything with BIOS setup (or possibly card-specific
| setup software that likely runs on DOS or Windows) to convince it to
| have an IRQ.
