I had thought about running the DOS setup software on this card, but since
the system seemed to be detecting it's presence I hadn't thought that
would be necessary.  Nevertheless I took your advice, and discovered that
the IRQ that the card was using was 12 rather than 10.  So after setting
the IRQ as you suggested, the problem cleared right up!

Thanks for the help as always!
