Default basic IRQ question

Hi there
I'm totally new to OpenBSD. I want to use it for a dedicated firewall. On the machine that i've got to install it on i noticed something when i booted up. Two different bits of hardware: USB ports and IDE drive both had the same IRQ(7). Is this going to be problematic for OpenBSD?. The only UNIX i've used before is Linux and i've never had to set IRQs in that. It is not that critical that i have USB on the machine, as i can do backups over the network, so should i just disable USB?. Or will it cause no problems for OpenBSD?.

PCI devices can share IRQ's, usually it is not a problem.

Consider posting a dmesg, generally PCI IDE controllers in compatibility mode use IRQ 14/15 but devices in native or SATA mode are free to use any IRQ they want.
