SubjectRe: 2.6.0-test3-mm3 reserve IRQ for isapnp (2.6.0-test3-mm3 <sigh>)
Thanks, I was supposed to try that too, but I forgot ;-)

So I tried it. Doesn't work... It does change the IRQ assignments, but
I don't think there would be any hope of it running without ACPI. Isn't
ACPI required for IRQ sharing? If not then it might work.

It uses 6 IRQ's just between the IDE and USB...the thing's stuffed with
cards. Add video, SB16, 2 serial ports, parallel...well, you get the
idea.

Now if VIA would have made it correctly in the first place...
