I'm surprised - that *did* work. I had managed to get it working before
on a previous installation of potato I had by jumping through hoops with

I remember trying to do that before and ending up with a ton of
"/etc/modules.conf is newer than /lib/modules/2.2.19pre17/modules.dep"
errors [and vice-versa].
