menueconfig'

I didn't see anything conciquential in lspci, but the first part 
scrolled off  the screen.

I occures to me that there may be a relationship with my boot time 
problem. In the beginning when I booted off the disk the unit would hang 
trying to auto configer the hardware. So at the boot prompt I put;
gentoo nodetect
I assumed that the problem was because I have 3 TV tuner cards (2 
different makes) plugged in, and don't have the driver software yet. 
Maybe I should remove the cards and do a reboot from CD?
