8KDA3J - unexpected IRQ sharing

Hello everybody!

I have a Epox 8KDA3J board v2.2 (with the nForce3 250GB chipset).

I have 4 PCI cards I would like to install on the board:
1. Creative SB Live! Value Sound Card
2. Echo Mia Sound Card
3. Winfast TV2000 XP TV/Radio Card
4. LevelOne Wireless LAN Card

According to the product manual (the printed one, as well as the one available
here: the PCI slots
should be shared as follows:
- PCI Slot 3 has it's own IRQ
- PCI Slot 4 has it's own IRQ
- PCI Slot 1 and PCI Slot 5 have a shared IRQ
- PCI Slot 2 and PCI Slot 6 have a shared IRQ
(I ignored sharing with USB/AC97/Onboard Gadgets as I don't care abou it)

So, supposebly, I should be able to install 4 PCI cards without *any* IRQ
sharing (e.g. Slots 1234, Slots 3456, Slots 1346, etc.)

However, I found out that the board starts different IRQ sharing in every card
configuration (not on slots 1+5, 2+6 as specified in the manual).

Moreover, I tried many combinations and I was unable to install the 4 cards
without IRQ sharing!

Please assist...
How come the IRQ sharing isn't working as specified in the manual?
How can I install these 4 cards without IRQ sharing.

Thanks ahead,
