You can probably "force" it to use the requested IRQ by going into your CMOS
setup (PCI section) and enter it there. Other than that there isn't any
possibility to set the IRQ (to the best of my knowledge.)

(One last idea: it could be possible that you can pass the kernel module
that drives your card a parameter that forces a specified IRQ, but I doubt
that since PCI cards are usually initialized by the PCI bios.)
