I don't think that driver is up to par yet, or even works on most of our
systems just yet (at least it didn't on the last package Adam put out).
And he said he wouldn't include it in rawhide until it started to work,
even if it was only one system.  So far I don't think it has yet (I
think pciids are the problem, not sure).

Maybe ajax can chime in on a quick status of this driver.
