Don't surpose anyone could post instructions on howI get the *PCI* part of my 
card working (ie what modules need loading and in what order), as I've just 
reinstalled Gentoo (prefere it over Fedora), and cannot get it (the PCI part) 
to show up.

I'm running the 2.6.16-r1 kernel, with all video4linux kernel options compiled 
as modules. All I need to know is what modules I need to load, in what order, 
and If theres anything else I have to do.

Thanks in advance, Buck

P.S. working on the photos...
