[rescue] using all three PCI slots in a U5?

Yes, all three slots are usable.  A few things to bear in mind:
Slot 2 can't take a full length card.  Slot 1 and 3 can take full length
cards, but a full length card in slot 1 will be VERY close to the CPU
heat sink, depending on the component height on the card may even touch,
i.e.. SunPCi card.

It should be slots 1 and 2 that will end up with their tabs overlapping
-- this works just fine.

The Ultra 5 has a vertical riser card where two PCI slots are are on one
side and the third is on the other side.  Slots 2 & 3 are on opposite
sides of the rise such that the tails of the cards have to each slide
down into opposite sides of the same tab.  Did this really work?  Were
all three slots usable with this design?
