Default Forcing Module IRQ

Under Linux, my SCSI card and Ti4200 are both using the same IRQ line: 11. In windows, I have them set to use different IRQ lines, so that I don't get IRQ steering overhead.

Is there any kernel parameters or options that can force the NVdriver to switch the card onto a different IRQ? Particularly I want it to use 9 since that IRQ is free on my system.

I'm using a cusom built 2.4.19 kernel using GCC 3.2. I've also built from sources the Nvidia drivers successfully under 3.2. The module loads and works fine.

Most motherboards these days assign IRQs based on which PCI slot the card is in. Can you move your SCSI card to a different PCI slot? That will most likely change its IRQ. Obviously this won't help with the AGP card, since you only have one AGP slot, but you can try it with the SCSI card.
