thanks.  I tried using the script, as well as reading it through.  Same

I also compiled the kernel myself, and ran 'make modules' and 'make

This laptop uses the Lucent Mars chip.  This means it is PCI (although I
will check some more).

Please let me know if you have any other thoughts.  Perhaps I should go
to a 2.2.13 kernel, so it won't care about the '-20' aspect?
