Trying to add 3rd nic to DL 360 G3

I'm trying to add a third nic to a DL 360 G3. The BIOS sees the nic but assigns an IRQ that is already being used by something else. In fact, all IRQ's that are an option for me are already used but built in controllers, etc. Is there a way around this?

The greatest thing about a PCI bus that cards can share an IRQ.

OK, but I still cannot get a link light out of this card. This is a known working card because I pulled it from a DL360 G2 machine. The cables are fine because I can switch it to one of the builtin NICS and get a link light.

Sounds like you do not have the driver loaded for this card
