Uh, why is the graphics card behind the bridge? This may result in poor
graphical performance (under X) if left there.

BEFORE you move it to one of the "top" three slots (all in front of the
bridge), tell SRM:

	>>> set pci_device_override -1

otherwise, SRM may complain and not let you boot.

Good luck.
