I couldn't install a 2nd card in my new Compaq SR1300NX Sempron with XP 
home. Don't know why - I couldn't do it and factory tech rep says it can't 
be done. But it became unimportant when I discovered that the on-board 
sound card could process data from multiple independent programs 
simultaneously under XP. Yours probably does this also.

Strangely, a different computer I have can handle two cards fine. They were 
both installed under Win98se and when I upgraded to XP they were both still 
there, still usable.
