Great research and finally a sufficiently detailed explanation. Since I am the one who suggested to run CTCM from AUTOEXEC, I must have contributed to the confusion.
I think you are correct that CTCM, when run from AUTOEXEC will autoconfigure the card, based on some PnP configuration, maybe from BIOS. This may be the configuration you want, or not. If it is the one you want - then all is good, otherwise you will have problems. I think I never had problems with running CTCM straight from AUTOEXEC, because the existing configuration it would apply was what I wanted.
