I'm not sure if moving the carrier card to a different slot will make
a difference. The processor card is installed in the "system slot",
and I've tried the carrier in a couple of the remaining slots. I assume
the system slot (marked with a triangle) should be dedicated to the
processor, and one can take their pick from the other slots for peripherals.
I'm told there may be a way to disable the PCI-PCI bridge in the BIOS,
but I can't seem to find that capability.
