Damn, my new via C3 board doesn't like this hack AT ALL.
It causes a powercycle just after the three numbers appear
when the kernel boots. Removing the hack locks the machine
as the wi(4) card is detected, just like on the old p3.
Am I right in thinking this is down to WaveLANs on cardbus in general?
I'm starting to think getting a different nic would be the simplest option...
