IRQ sharing question

I installed a PCI to USB card "PCI to USB open host controller" and it "Plug and Played" to IRQ 11. My "IRQ holder for PCI steering devices" is also on IRQ 11. When I use my USB Kodak DVC323 desktop video cam it works for about 10-15 min. then is dropped from the system ie. won't even show in device manager. I think this IRQ sharing is causing the problem. I have IRQ 10 free, how can I make either one of these components go to IRQ 10?? When I try to manually assign an IRQ to either one, Win98 won't let me.

               Thanks in advance for the help,

Try from your BIOS. Check IRQ assignment.

Sorry it's been so long since Iv'e responded, been out of U.S.A.  working. I think if I can figure my BIOS menu out your answer is going to work. Thanks
