i haven't been using that machine for a while(lent it to some freinds), but i
could find it again, try with the 2.6.24 kernel, and then upgrade to lenny and
try with that, too.
though, now that i think of it, i may have done a fresh etch install and it may
have been working fine... apologies for being so vague.
if i don't come up with anything in a couple weeks, feel
free to close this bug. or just go ahead and close it.
