Also, out of interest, what does IRQ hungry mean? Isn't the frequency
of interrupts determined by HW parameters you choose? How can there be
any 'extra' interrupts. You mentioned in an earlier thread that your
SB card didnt seem so interrupt hungry, but are you sure the device is
opened with the same params? I'm no expert. Can anyone explain this?
