Does this error still occur with more recent kernel versions?
Uh, I _think_ I still have the hardware but it's not assembled.
To be honest, putting it back together is not a priority
this hot minute. I'm sure I will someday want to clean my office,
which will either mean seeing about getting it working or throwing
it away. I'm always loath to throw things away, so I may
get to this someday -- if I've still got a box with an ISA
bus to plug the card into.
For the record, I got an email from someone about a year
after having the problem who claimed that replacing
the lamp fixed the problem.
