Yep, one of my 64-bit PCI slots only seems to work with Intel NICs.
Go figure.

At any rate, I have 4 32-bit slots, and they seem to work, at
least long enough for the driver to puke messages and hard-lock my
machine ;)

If you think this NIC should work with the tg3, then I can change
them to a completely other machine, btw.
