I did read the reboot suggestion on the list. 
Unfortunately it did not help.  The paste of
commands/output is post-reboot.  Any other ideas? 
Kind of stuck on my FC3 install and am about to start
over but with an FC1 install.  (have not gotten sound
to work either {at least not consistently}, but was
not too worried since I will be running the .nuv files
through another computer).
