Am I going to get an IRQ conflict?

I have just installed a 3com ethernet card. When my boot sequence starts I see that this ethernet card and my SCSI card are both using IRQ 9. I am presently waiting to get an ADSL line hooked up and I'm not presently using the ethernet card for anything. I was wondering if I have a potential conflict on my hands.

No, since both cards are on the PCI bus, they will be able to share the interrupt. I've had four adapters on the same interrupt without any problems.

You will see Interrupt steering entries in device manager. These show that the interrupt sharing is working properly.
