I tried that and it didn't work.  kudzu would just add the entries back and 
not do anything.

With a Tulip ethernet card kudzu would just add the hwconf entry and not load 
a device driver.  With a via-rhine card it would load the driver but not ask 
any question.

With all the other hardware the result is the same, even truncating the file 
to zero bytes does no good.

Thanks for the suggestion though.
