Question IRQ changes each time card it ejected

I am using cargmgr 3.1.14 with kernel 2.2.14 mainly a mandrake 7 laptop. I have a Calluna ATA/IDE card that works great under normal circumstances. Here is my main issue. With the filesystem on the card mounted, I just pull the card out without unmounting the filesystem or using cardctl -eject. Cardmgr seems to take care of the unmount, mount and /etc/mtab no longer show the mount. If I put the card back in, cardmgr detects and activates the card. But, the first time card is used, it is /dev/hdc1 IRQ 3 After the removal and reinsertion of the card, it is now going after IRQ 9 and is /dev/hde1 I can not just pull the card out anymore times than this because it then can not find a free IRQ. Why is IRQ 3 nolonger able to be used? Is there a way to free or reset IRQ3 when the card is just pulled out? If not how about manualy.

Also, anyone have any luck using supermount with ATA/IDE card device, I get a kernel panic when I do...
