SubjectRe: issues with any ac sources, and 2.6
Date
I got one of those in my office running 2.4.21-ac.  It runs well. Do you want 
to try my kernel? Those boards are real sensitive to ESD and constantly
loose their BIOS values if you swap a board out or pull a cable. I had one
that refused to boot on me today and I just pulled and reseated the PCI cards
and it came back to life.
