I am getting IRQ routing conflict messages:

However I am not seeing any problems caused by this (however I do not use
USB very much, as I mentioned - only for a trackball). I also got the same
messages on my K7T Pro which used the KT133 chipset, however, so I don't
think this is a KT133/KT133A issue.
I can't seem to find dump_pirq on my system (Red Hat 7) - I can run it if I
find it...

I'll do that and get back to you - I'll have to physically be at my machine
to reset the BIOS to "PNP: Yes" so it won't be until I get home from work.

This may be the difference - I always set "Plug-n-Play OS: No" on all my
machines. Linux works fine and it doesn't seem to hurt Windows 98 any.
