In principle, it "should" be possible to build a PCI-Express card containing a PCI-Express to PCI bridge chip and one or more PCI slots. I have no idea whether such a device is commercially available. In practice, the combination might not fit in the box, and/or the BIOS might not be set up to enumerate a PCI bus downstream of the PCI-Express bus. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
