It's worth trying.

On the PCI-bus, IRQs and other hardware resources are assigned by
Plug-and-Play. This is not always the case on the ISA-bus, which is
why the BIOS on systems with ISA-busses will let you reserve IRQs and
DMA ports for non-PnP ISA cards.

As to your soundcard and your network sharing an IRQ, it shouldn't
really be a problem.
