To list IRQ's and io ports in use try:
cat /proc/interrupts  (IRQ's)
cat /proc/ioports

There is a way to specify ranges to devices, usually with arguments to
the drivers via /etc/modules.conf or boot params.  There is also a way
to exclude IO ports and IRQ's when autoloading modules, but I forget
where this is done..  (perhaps im confusing this with something else..)
