Of course, by the nature of PC hardware, at least one of will
undoubtedly cause problems for anothre notebook, and the other for
another...  8-)

"There's gotta be a better way to do this."  Isn't there some way to
query the BIOS, or something?

Data point: on my ThinkPad 760EL, IRQ 7 seems to be used for my PCMCIA
modem (gee, looking at things, i guess i don't have my parallel port
configured), and IRQ 9 seems to be used for my PCMCIA ethernet.  At
home I've got a docking station with a (built-in) PCI SCSI adapter, a
PCI slot, and two more PCMCIA slots (that I don't know the IRQ #s for
off-hand 8-).
