Glitches with linux PD

My ps2 mouse uses IRQ12, which is definitely in the range of
the interrupt a soundcard would use. With "isapnp" and "pnpdump" 
you should be able to change the cards interrupt.
ISA and PNP have ever been a problem for linux, as it is not 
supported by the kernel directly.
I still doubt that these cards would work without the -frags, 
as the driver probably isn't good enough.
