Tried that ... and I even swapped out the floppy drive of the system
that made the disk into my new box.

What it was, that I finally found, was PCI Support. I disabled it in
the kernel and all's well...

The motherboard is a piece of shit... it's performance was way below
spec and generally just crappy. Since it wasn't the one I ordered,
I've returned it and placed an order for a Asus P55T2P4.

The Moral of the story ...
