Thanks for the advice.  I've gleaned the same from reading docs and other
answers.  After removing the 4-port card, rebooting, letting kudzu remove
all settings, adding the card, rebooting and letting kudzu prompt me for all
settings, things are in much better shape.  It's been more work than I
thought it would, but I'll likely accomplish my goal this afternoon (a
little configuration left to do).

I don't recommend any myself, as I'm doing much of this work for the first
time.  The person who built the machine, quite some time ago now, likes
Intel's 2-port card and Adaptec's 4-port card, a newer version of the 4-port
card that I mentioned in my original post.
