Default GA-8KNXP IRQ's

Page 57 where it discuses BIOS setup.

PCI1 and PCI5 shared.
PCI2, 3, 4 not shared

Hi:


Does anybody knows how the IRQ's and PCI slots are shared on this
Board? I have read the manual several times and it is not there. I
don't want any conflict with the IRQ's if I place a PCI card on a
specific slot. I am using ACPI now which I think will avoid that kind
of problem,but still want to know the IRQ's and PCI slots shared just
in case problems arise. Thanks for any help.

Dont forget any on board devices will use IRQs as well, so if you have
3 USB hubs thats 3 IRQs and sound makes another so that is 4 IRQs used
by on board crap, which means, finding a totaly free unshared IRQ is a
myth at best....

If using win2K or better enable APIC extensions and providing your
DRIVERS will support it you can avoid IRQ conflicts ( usualy ).

Damn, all i read these days are threads about the 8KNXP. Does anybody talk
about the 8INXP anymore?

Or is it obsolete now

Hi:


Thanks. How could I missed that?. It is very clear in that page 57.
Guess I was looking but not seeing. Well, it happened some times.
