Hi Wade,

As the system boots I see lo, eth0(on-board), eth1(pci), eth2(pci), eth3(pci) 
and eth4(pci) as they get configured.  As I mentioned, I have correctly 
configured all 5 pci cards when kudzu recognized them the first time I put 
them into the box.  The 5th nic just does not come up.  No errors nothing.
