require that you specify the Direct Memory Access (DMA)
channel that you want the adapter to
use. Direct memory access permits data to be transferred
between memory and a device without the intervention of the system's
central processing unit (CPU).
Each DMA chip on the system
motherboard has eight
circuits (or ``channels'') for conveying data. DMA channel
4 is reserved for use by the system. During configuration,
you may choose to use any (or none) of the channels.
