Okay, I think I can disprove this theory too :-/  I went to the BIOS
and told it that a PCI card was using IRQ 10; then it allocated IRQ 5
to the Ethernet card.  Still no luck.  I booted into the Debian
installer and again, it found the network card but wouldn't talk to
the network.  /proc/interrupts said it was the only device using IRQ 5.
