Actually, the information was in the BIOS setup screen.  There is 
usually a page where you can manually force a PCI slot to a particular 
IRQ, and on mine they were labelled PCI 1/5, PCI 2/6, PCI 3 and PCI 4, 
so I shuffled things around until I was only using 1, 3, 4 and 6.  Many 
motherboards also link the IRQ for the last PCI slot to the AGP slot 
(some mobo booklets suggest leaving the last PCI slot empty if you 
install an AGP card), and the on-board USB and LAN hardware also 
sometimes piggyback on the PCI/AGP IRQs.  You'd think they would just 
run a few more wires....
