ok, i've gotten a lot farther now that i ran lilo by hand.  however, now
i'm getting another weird problem, i was able to get around it, but i
thought you should know.

this is a stock proliant 1600 with a SmartArray 221 raid controller.  it
has a TI thunderlan nic in it.  since the TI thunderlan is a module, i
selected that during the "install kernel and modules" phase.  (btw, why is
it a module?  i'd figure that all proliant 1600's would have these cards,
at least, we didn't ask for anything special.)  everything went fine -- i
manually lilo'd, rebooted, and the system came up fine.  however, tlan.o
was not in /etc/modules so i had to insmod it by hand and then ifup.

i can move this to a new bug if you think that would be appropriate.

anyway, thanks!
