I needed lots of sleep.  Right now I don't have a CD burner. I am using it
to boot from.  I am running from a knoppix CD.  I think there is a way to
fix this without starting over.  I have chrooted in to my new HD, I
downloaded a 2006.1 stage3, I did the env-update && source etc/profile...

I will be working on this and reading through as much as I can find about
it today.  If I can't get anywhere with it, I can get a CD from my friend
some time next week.  Good luck with the ALSA stuff.  You may need to
recompile the kernel with that.
