Here is some info I found that may help solve the problem. Let me know if it does not.
Base address conflicts with pc lpm 16 legacy boards
Problem: Installing a pc lpm 16 legacy board may lead to base address conflicts regardless of rocker switch settings and the system's base address availabilities. The rocker switch has an "OFF" label and an arrow beneath it. The arrow seems to imply that "OFF" is in a certain direction. "OFF" may be in the exact opposite direction.
Solution : Follow the software instructions as far as the correct rocker switch settings but on the board, assume "OFF" is in the direction of the label and NOT the arrow. Try inverting all rocker switches (a5-a9) to the exact opposite and keep the software settings the same.
