Sigh, more breakage.

Fun stuff :).

Can you try 2108 from people.redhat.com/davej/kernels/Fedora/FC5 instead ?
That has it disabled by default.

I tried it but no difference. RHGB didn't work trying it just as-is. Disabled that and quiet and it hung at trying to find an IP address
again.  I also tried giving it the pci=nomsi but it didn't understand
that either.  When undoing quite, I did notice some messages about MSI
capability.  What exactly is that (if you care to explain)?  Hmm, I
found the following messages in dmesg after booting 2096 (I think
these are the same in the other kernels). Don't know if they are pertinant or not:

PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:0b.0 to 64
pcie_portdrv_probe->Dev[005d:10de] has invalid IRQ. Check vendor BIOS
assign_interrupt_mode Found MSI capability
Allocate Port Service[0000:00:0b.0:pcie00]
Allocate Port Service[0000:00:0b.0:pcie03]

This block is repeated with the 'b' in 0000:00:0b.0 being 'c', 'd',
and 'e'.  Let me know what else I can do.
