Ah, that may very well be your problem. What make/model of PCI card are you

As mentioned in my earlier post, there was this issue with certain PCI FW
cards, notably Orange Micro, but generally cards with an NEC chipset were
problematic (ie slower) and cards with Texas Instrument chipsets seemed to
be fine.

Computers with the built-in FW ports didn't seem to exhibit this problem.
