Aha, this did the trick. Slots 1&5 on my motherboard share the same IRQ; slot
1 has my SBLive and slot 5 had the DLink. I moved the DLink over to slot 4,
and everything is happy now.
Interestingly enough, after moving the card, the PCI ID now shows up as
1186:1300, so no kernel modifications are necessary.
Thanks everybody for your help! I've never seen an IRQ conflict cause so much
grief in Linux before -- I thought PCI was supposed to be able to share IRQ's.
