Paul what OS, you running?

You might find you need to get hold of a little .REG file that fixes IRQ
mappings under win2k/XP.  I think it's called something like lucent_w2k.reg
or something.  It comes on a floppy with Orinoco PCI adapters.  I think
someone else on the list tracked it down online.

>I'll gladly throw up a few screenshots if it'll help.
