[sorry Ian, couldn't seem to write back to you directly, and anyway
seemed relevant to the whole list]

hey, this might be the problem -- I did apt-get udev at some point in
the evening last night!  (though haven't fiddled with it yet).  Do you
happen to have the relevant rules handy -- I haven't looked into udev
yet, really, so I could use a guide.

Isn't udev supposed to be for hotplug stuff?  Why does it apply to PCI
cards?

anyway, thanks for the tip,
matt
