Does your system boot normally if you remove the new card? If so, I'd be 
looking at an IRQ mapping issue... or perhaps a controller on the card 
affect the bus path ID for your drive controllers? Not likely, but hard 
to say. Most likely is your card and the drive controller are 
inappropriately sharing an IRQ and causing a conflict. Have you tried 
putting the card into another slot?
