I just noticed my reply has been "held-up" cuz the .config attachment was a bit large.
So - if you'd like to look at that let me know.
My orig email said I had installed the generic 2.6.9 kernel without the BTTV/CXX drives (so I could build the BTTV/CXX modules (v1.5) which come with the card.
The new drivers were very easy to setup/install. No kernel "patches" or "hacks".
