Mmm I think I've answered my own question... Turns out that the wireless
card isnt seated well into the PCI slot... the front end of the card
makes full contact but the back end (the side with the bracket) doesnt
fully seat into the PCI slot! I found this out by looking at how the
extra ethernet card and the wireless card fit in the PCI slots.
Anyways, I bent the bracket here and there so it would seat well in the
PCI slot and now the Bios AND XP detects it! I guess this shows how
you have to be careful when installing PCI slots (this full contact on
one side and half contact on the other is probably why the Firewire/USB
combo card was weird too). Thanks for the help though! Your feedback
was more helpful than the Microsoft Usenet help groups =)
