I doubt this is actually an Ubuntu problem but I am hoping that someone
smarter than me can figure this one out.

I have recently purchased two Zonet ZEW1601 wireless pci cards for two
desktops I have at home. I successfully following the instruction in the
Ubuntu Wireless card how-to and got the card working fine.

In my second machine, when I insert the card, the machine will not boot;
I don't even get to the point where I can enter the BIOS. There is
literally nothing on the screen. I turn the machine off, remove the card
and restart and it boots fine.

I suspect that my BIOS is having trouble with the card, but I have no
way of knowing.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
