I think it is needed for diagnostic purposes.

Also, right now, I need to figure out how to make a custom slackware
bootdisk with the decompressing ramdisk trick in it. I could get away
without figuring out how if I could use a buslogic=pci:no line to the
one you supplied. So I would have really liked that option!

(if anyone already knows how to make a S/w bootdisk with a
decompressing ramdisk, please let me know :-).

Is it "BusLogic" or "buslogic"? DOes it matter? Anyway, I'll be trying both.
