How to Forcibly Modify Resources Allocated to the 3COM EtherLink
XL 3C900B PCI adapter:
Do this only if needed and only if you are an advanced user.
• For advanced users only: In case of resource conflict, you can try to
change the resources for the network adapter. To do this, turn the Vectra
system power off, remove the network adapter and install it into a different PCI slot.
