    Want to put a Promise Ultra100TX2 standard IDE controller card into an
    Aopen AK86-L motherboard.

    Don't have any SATA drives, and I want a little more flexibility in
    mounting hard drives and optical drives.

    Vaguely recall issues with which ide slot the card goes in so it
    doesn't have conflicts with other motherboard based ide components.

    Anyone suggest slots to use or avoid ?

    Its usually good practice to keep as many open slots between cards as
    possible. I really dont think it is as much of an issue anymore with XP and
    the newer releases of Linux. Also, the motherboard drivers have improved to
    reduce IRQ conflicts.
