Figured there ws something out ther. Just didn't get a chance to look.
Glad it's working. Upgrading to RHL-7.0 or a 2.4 kernel
would give you better performnce with that chip. The kernel
upgrade will require several other updates though, like
modutils and binutils.

Would ONLY affect the output of the lspci. that's all that
uses the file. /proc/pci is set when you compile the kernel,
using a similar, but different file.
