Compaq/HP DL380 G3 - PCI and PCIX compatibility

Can any one assist with the following:

We have a customer who has bought a DL380 G3 as an upgrade to a G2 server. When it came to the installation of the system, the Eicon S94 PCI card (an X.25 card) from the original G2 server could not be moved into the new G3 server, the PCI-X slot is not capable of holding the card.

Compaq/HP state that PCI-X is ???A compatible extension of the existing PCI Bus??? (See http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/servers/proliantdl380/questionsanswers-g3.html#7).

Is there any way around this?
