LOL - funny... I thought I was being helpful in letting the list know I 
had gotten past
the install point with using noprobe.

I do still have issues with the rtl8169 module blowing up.  The second 
comment was just
geared towards hoping someone else might have a suggestion on the 
rtl8169 device
no working and perhaps there was some other OBSCURE command line 
argument that might
help on boot...

Have a great day.
