1x Linksys v5.1 NIC, 1x PCI slot, and LIL w/o the O and VGA problems on slackware 10


I'm running Slackware 10.0 and I'm using LILO.
The pc is just slightly newer than archaic....
It's a 300 mhz k6-2 w/ onboard everything except for the nic.

The problem revolves somewhere around the one and only pci slot.
basically, we put the nic in and either the video for some reason disappears ( but we've managed to have it in and get video too ) or when the video is there it gets to Lilo, but LILO gives us its coded error message "LIL_"

When we remove the NIC everything works flawlessly.

So, is the problem the actual card, is there an irq conflict and how de we figure out if it is that and solve the problem, or is there something wrong with the pci slot?
