Slot1 PCI is the first Slot. AGP is the first device on the PCI0 or 1
So if you use an AGP, you must (don´t have to) leave PCI1 spare.
Then you can connect PCI to Slot 2 and Slot3. Slot 4 and 5 is probably
(I don´t know the A7V133 very good, but the VIA´s at this time were
only terrible, making ISA-PCI-AGP Boards without ISA Slots!?) shared.
If you use a PCI GfX, I would suggest you to use the first PCI Slot.
PCI2 - Networkcard
PCI-3 - USB
PCI4/5 - Sound
Probably you will get interreupt-sharings when connecting something to
Slot 4/5 (there is the Pci to ISA-Bridge, without ISA Slots :-)), with
OnBoard Devices like USB, Sound which are normally connected internally
to Slot 4/5. But if disabling all onboard features you could get free
The same goes with the AGP Slot, if connected together with a PCI Card
in Slot 1.
But all at all it would not make much difference. Configuring Windows
98 for Standard-PC operation is possible, but I don´t know how. A NT
based System will give you much more access to the Hardware (more
98 is placing all devices to IRQ9 making Software IRQ....
etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.
Configuring at this parameters makes a nice, fast and responsible
system (every device an own IRQ). But as you do, you go well with Win98
(leaving all possible devices possible), too. 1.3Ghz can compensate it.
