Award slot: PCI ISA Expansion Card (modified 0 times)
I found a PCI ISA expansion card that fits into the Award slot on the motherboard. It has a bunch of resistors and capacitors on it, besides 3 ISA and 2 PCI slots. I have not plugged it in to try it out.
A co-worker mentioned that the Websurfer's motherboard might not be able to arbitrate the PCI bus(ie determine which slot is being addressed).
Any info if the motherboard can have more than 1 PCI and 1 ISA?
Info on the expansion card I have:
QANOR2068 is on a white label
numbers etched into the board during manuf:

Yes, He has a point. So far I have check a few and the pinouts from the male edge to ISA/PCI are the same. So, no doubt, are different. The one issue is IDSEL pin from each PCI slot. Each IDSEL is connected to
one of the high order AD3x or AD2x lines.
Since at boot time the PCI card doesnt have an io address this is the way to enable the card to read/write configuration. It would
get an io address at this point and then
be address like any ISA card would. This process happens at boot with the PCI support
in BIOS berfore any OS is loaded.
Its hit or miss. Try all PCI slots. ISA
a better chance for working since all line
are in parallel.
