Count me among the confused. Yes, it's PCI-Express.

Not at the moment. It needs both NICs because it has private and
public IP addresses which must be on separate interfaces. It took it a
few days to lock up, and its owner (Mom) can't be without it for that
long to see if it's OK without that NIC.

Basically, since it didn't _have_ to run in 64-bit mode ("only" 1 gig
of RAM), the simplest fix to try was to install 32-bit. There's also
the minor issue that Mom needed Flash functionality in Firefox, and
AFAIK Macromedia hasn't released a 64-bit plugin.

BTW, I just checked - the system in question has been up for 2 months
straight on 32-bit.
