Well, I've had detection problems on a old PC before, and the way I
got it fixed was to "Reset Configuration Data" option in the BIOS. 
First, try sticking in only two cards, and just start up m0n0 and see
if it sees 2 cards (and only two cards).  If it does, then put in the
3rd... (Try alternate slots as well)

If it sees 3 but can't get a link state, or if it sees 3 where it
should only see two, go into your BIOS and set the option closest to
the meaning of "Reset Configuration Data" (Enabled) where it's
disabled by default and will be disabled after the next boot.  Some
BIOSes call this the ESCD data or something, so see if you can find
that and see if that helps.

m0n0 also has issues with ISA cards, so I hope none of those 3 above
are ISA cards.  I've not been able to get any ISA cards working with
