For stable servers, you don't need kudzu.  Just turn it off with
chkconfig and if you make a hardware change in the future, turn it back
until you've got everything configured, then turn it back off again.

The last thing you want in a server is kudzu mucking around with the
hardware config unexpectedly.

Just wanted to thank Ed Wilts, Chockalingam and Alfred Hovdestad for their answers to this. I guess I will just turn off kudzu so that it doesn't "muck" with my hardware config like Ed says. Thank You All for your help and sorry it took me so long to write back with my appreciation.
