Thanks I have reposted to vortex and I will try get BIOS make and version PC

Do you know of other BIOS settings that influence this behaviour.
eg Do I switch all IRQ to PCI some are reserved for ISA!

Is there anyway to search these mailling lists?

Once again thanks.

The "vortex" mailing list is the correct one for 3c905 (vs. the ISA 509)
