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?
