I recently sold a lenovo desktop to a company that uses PCI cards that require irq 10 and 11 reserved for this card There running XP PRO AND THERE SEEMS TO BE NOTHING IN THE BIOS THAT WOULD ALLOW THEM TO RESERVE 10 AND 11 IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE WITH NEWER MOTHER BOARDS?

Those IRQs have been really commonly used for other things for many years, but quite often, XP can share them nicely.  

However, the fact that you're asking shows that this is still giving you a problem.  Is it possible to contact the manufacturer of the cards, as they've probably been asked this question a zillion times...

DanCh99: I'm at a disavantage here the card is the customers and he has used this card in older XP machines with no problem they feel it is a ACPI configuration which this Mother board does not support any changes to ACPI in the bios. If this makes no sense I'm just relaying the customers comments.

ta for the points.  I'm surprised that ACPI is blamed, as it's just about power management.  However, incompatibilities can exist, and the manufacturer should have a "known good" list of motherboards, at least.
