Compared MSCP IDE is primitive.

Well if the componenets are oriented like the rest of the boards you have
it right.
you sure it's pushed all the way in? Are you sure you didn't move it
down one
or over (across)? Did you insure you didn't accidently pull another card
and not insert it all the way? Did you move and jumpers, switches

It you flipped it over the all important smoke will escape and then you
have problems.
It's pretty hard to do that.

Not likely, assuming all the connectors were in good shape.

As non PC minicomputers and workstations go it is.
