6: Peripheral Installation

The inline peripheral cards are very easy to install and is one of the simplest things to do when assembling a system. If possible try and give your self an open slot between the inline cards as this helps in heat reduction and IRQ share problems. Make sure the cards are completely and firmly inserted in the appropriate slots or you will encounter errors or a no post system when you try and start the system for the first time. Most systems will have a video card a modem or network card and a sound card as add in cards so running out of PCI slots should not be a problem for most users.
