I think I'm headed in the right direction, this kernel now has the
AMD/nforce stuff builtin alongside the VIA. Invisible
to /var/log/dmesg.

Both cpu's are athlon XP's but the new one is 2x faster, besides, I
was losing ground at setiathome, all the new hardware was passing me.
Gotta play catchup. :-)

Thanks Markus
