Thanks for the help. In the end I just installed another card and found
that this new card was broken since windows bitched about it. 
I found another one that works.

Maybe the card hasn't been initialized because you
enabled PnP from the bios?

When PnP is enabled, the bios does NOT assign IRQs
or initialize any cards. It lets Windows do that.

Unfortunately for some reason, no other operating
system can do what Windows does, so everyone else
requires that PnP is disabled.
