I guess you could go out and reassign the IRQ and addresses by writing to
PCI registers (0xCF8 and 0xCFC), but I would consider that a very risky
as you might cause conflict with the new memory and IRQ assignments.

Normally the BIOS assigns IRQ’s to the various PCI boards in the PC, and
the driver will go out and perform a “plug and play” detection, i.e.
certain vendor ID and device ID’s and then read which IRQ this board been
assigned from the PCI registers.
Under QNX you can run the “pci” utility which will list all plug and play
and their assigned addresses and IRQ’s.

We are looking into some Gateway E6000 machines. They have
removed the “PCI Configuration” menu from their BIOS setup screens.
This menu allows one to assign IRQ’s to the PCI slots (and the
devices that are hardwired to them).
Given this, is there any program available that will change the IRQ
