    I have here an old Dell Dimension 466 DL and am trying to fit an ISA ethernet
    card into it. The problem I am having is that the slot is a few mm too close
    to the edge of the case so it is physically impossible to insert the card. It
    looks a bit like this:

    | pins on slot
    |edge | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |
    |of | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |
    |case pins on card
    |
    i

    The slot is on a kind of daughterboard attached to the motherboard.

    What should I do?

    Thanks
