There is one case in which a 64bit PCI card should _not_ work in a
32bit slot: when the card is 3.3v PCI or PCI-X. The Symbios 20320 and
21320 are such cards, while the 22320 is a universal card.
The only 2 tools you will ever need are WD-40 and duct tape. If it
moves and it shouldn't, use duct tape. If it doesn't move and it
should, use WD-40.
