Was this problem ever solved ? I'm getting the same problem on my
P90 ASUS PCI/I boards. Everything works fine except for the ed0.
I can supply the config-file if it has not been solved but someone
wants to give it a try. I can also try out various patches if someone
gives me them (i.e. I've got enough diskspace and enough PCI/I boards.)

The cost of living hasn't affected it's popularity. (unknown)
