the best board order is to put things with small buffrs and/or high 
interrupt rates closer to the processor. ethernet interfaces, async 
boards, TK controllers, put them close. disks go last. disk controllers 
tend to have buffers and while they might still dominate the total 
_traffic_ theyre not blotting out the other devices' interrupts. 
still, since what youre doing right now is all disk traffic, this shouldnt
havemuch effect.
