Exclamation Dell i8200 Notebook GeForce4 440 Go and IRQ 11

I've scoured these forums and the internet and can't seem to find any command or way to force the IRQ of the video card. Everyone's answer seems to be simply "move around the cards". well, this is a notebook. I can't.

the card works great under XP. under gentoo it works good, but any OpenGL screensavers or whatnot will cause studdering. *grr*

there is a way to append="netdev=5,0xec80,eth0" to the kernel to force the network card, but that's not enough as I have EIGHT frickin' things on IRQ 11. *sigh*. It would be much simpler and more efficient if I could just move the video card to a new IRQ. Surely the folks at nVidia are feeling the pain here? I see many people with this problem.

here are my stats:
