and we have another winner!

It's the cheapy Huappaug WinTV model 404 ($79 at Circuit City).  I'll
be writting up a little FAQ and stuff it on my web site within the next

But to summarize:

	+ RedHat 4.2
	+ Had to upgrade kernel to 2.0.35
		new kernel broke aic7xxx modules for Adaptec 2490
	+ Had to patch kernel with latest aix7xxx module source
	+ build kernel / modules / install

	+ build bttv
	+ build xawtv

	+ waste 3 freakin days trouble shooting what turns out
	to be a PnP problem (Plug and Play) ARGH! @@!*$%!

	+ my setup still isn't simple enough to have the wife run it,
	but I'll iron out the details in the next week.


	TV works (some small hickups remain)

	Composite video input doesn't work but I think I know why. I
	outght to have it fixed in the next day or two...
