I concurr, this success story was very encouraging. Be sure to let us know if 
things change when you've got your _real_ card in place. I noticed you had 
the via integrated sound-card at irq 4, which might not be possible with the 
_real_ card.

As for comparing "vanilla" 2.6 with 2.4+ll+preempt and so on. I think it's 
completely reasonable, 2.6 has been marketed as the all in one solution that 
we have been waiting for and I think we should treat it as that. And I 
definitely, still, have high hopes for reaching comparable and even exceeding 
functionality with 2.6 without adding any patches... 
It just looks so good on paper :)
