I wish that were true, but I fear the opposite. Already, most new
PC's and replacement (high end) motherboards come with maybe one
or two ISA slots. That's not *available* slots, but the sum total
of ISA slots in the machine. The rest of the slots, assuming a tower
or large deskptop (not a slimline) case, are PCI bus. Yes, you
have 5 or 6 PCI slots available and maybe an AGP slot for a graphics
I wonder when LZ engineering is releasing the new PCI DVP board?
What Jim said about IRQ's however, is right on the money.
