Oh, that's truly wierd. Most memory cards don't even connect to any of the
bus request/grant lines - they often have short loopbacks from each 'grant
in' pin to 'grant out' - not sure about NPG because canonically, that is
jumpered through on the backplane.
A couple of things to check: First, does that memory even have traces
connected to the NPR/NPG-in/NPG-out pins? Second, does a different, known
working card, provoke any problems in that slot? (E.g. your serial interface
card?) I'm wondering if the problem is the slot, not the card.
