problems with nailer and split tongues on solid hardwood floors

I hired a Powernailer to put my 3/8" solid hardwood floor down over ply, and I'm having an issue with the nailer partially splitting the tongues. The PSI is set to 90, which is what the book says, and I have the nailer adjusted correctly to the height of the wood. Is there anything I can do to help alleviate the problem, or is it just par for the course with solid hardwoods? I dread the idea of doing it, but if the nailer does too much damage I'll have to resort to hand-nailing the floor down through the tongues!

You got any pictures of this damage? What type nailer are you using. Hopefully not one used on 3/4" flooring. http://www.doityourself.com/forum/el...your-post.html
