I'm pretty sure that that card is a 64bit PCI card.  The card that I have is kinda triangular shaped, and the connector is divided into three parts.  One of them longer and the two equally small pieces, the second being the 64bit portion.  In a 32bit slot, not all of the card would fit into the slot.  The 64bit portion of the connector would be hanging out past the slot.  This might explain why the card wouldn't be recognized when you check `lspci` and dmesg.


Duh - I guess that would explain things. At least I didn't throw them out thinking they were bad. I guess I'll need to buy a 64 bit motherboard now :)


Thanks - Tod
