Nope.. I used menuconfig but i had this option turned off.

Also as for the changes between pre5 and pre3, my mixer still doesn't
work, although i have found that i can set up the sound levels in mac os
and they will work in linux.. although i still can not turn off the
internal speaker with any mixer program because they all say they can
not open the mixer, this was not a problem with 2.2.x.  Also my ethernet
still doesn't work, although the kernel still seems to think it does, no
link light on the hub and ihaven't been able to ping either way.
