Yes, I believe you are right on every count, and I beleive that my awe64
isn't fully functional, with this clarifications.  I'll have to get home
to test the midi...  Ummm looking through your mini howto on the awe I
only ran into one problem.  I don't have a /etc/init.d/boot.  Where would
I add that little bit of script into if not there?  I am fairly new to
linux and not sure of the order it runs all the boot scripts, or most
names for that matter.

Thank you,
