So I've noticed that it seems most of the older ISA boards i've found typically have a couple of slots with unpopulated 16 bit isa slot extensions. My Peak D/M based board has a total of 8 slots but only 6 of them are fully 16 bit. Is this just a cost saving measure, or is there a more solid limitation (e.g. DMA/IRQ address limitations). I was planning on swapping one of the slots around ( the retail version of the board has the 8 bit slots at slot 1 and 7 instead of slot 1 and 2 like mine) but if I can just add the unpopulated slots safely and get a full 8 16 bit slots I will.
