I've heard that but I'm not sure it's true.  I've got both a TI
and an NEC chipset (one motherboard, one card) and it works fine
with two MOTU devices which claim to hate the NEC chipset.

I've also seen a forum posting that says you might need to go into
device manager and disable the driver for the motherboard device.

I find it hard to believe that the presence of a Ricoh chip
on a motherboard with a disabled driver can somehow interfere 
with the operation of a Firewire device on a PCI card.
