IRQ settings are viewable in Windows XP by selecting
"accessories" from the programs menu then "tools" then "system information" and then "hardware". This
lists all the IRQ's in use including shared one's and will tell you if any conflicts. Windows 98 has a similar information menu via the "system information" route. You don't need to do anything about IRQ's unless you have conflicting hardware trying to use the same IRQ at the same times.
