    Any of u guys know how many IRQ's are available under win xp home - cos I have 9 devices using the same IRQ !!!!!
    I wanna setup the system so that each device (or controller) can have its own IRQ. Are there any devices which must use specific IRQ's or any IRQ's that cannot be used?

    As you'v probably guessed by now i dont know much about IRQ's so any help would be appreciated!!!

    Thats XP's IRQ SHaring + ACPI. As long as everything works fine, devices should not need seperate IRQs.
