Is your machine running fine?

No lockups/crashes?

No devices not working?

No strange error messages? [hmm - guessing this in Win9X, those should be normal :-)]

Are you asking out of curiousity or because of a problem you suspect is related?

I know that devices share IRQ, e.g. COM1 or COM2 will share with your soundcard, which is normal. As for those above conflicts, I don't know I'm afraid.

Unless you're having a problem, leave it alone.
Those IRQs settings are normal.
