Well, if he is using the MVista supplied LSP, the config should be
correct, as it was tested on a similar machine at mvista.  What changed
from PPC5Bug 1.3 to 1.4?  There is a general reliance on the lopec for
the firmware to have set things up correctly, so if there was some
critical fix in 1.4, that might explain it.

My memory has been, and will continue to be wrong on occasions.  Thanks.
