I really hate doing this. Answering my own post but I do it because
others may run into the same issue. First I do not yet have a "Debian"
solution. I was however able to cobble together a script using webmin
that loades the module driver and start-up along with defaout-Stop for
the card. If anyone else has this, issue mail me and I will help.
If anyone i.e. developers come up with a "Debianized" version, I would
appreciate a heads up.
