It's not an issue any longer since I ran into a bigger issue with
Ubuntu 6.06; at least from my perspective. I've abandoned running
Ubuntu on my server and I'm just going to continue running Sarge until
Etch become the stable release from Debian. Hopefully Etch will not
suffer from the same udev problem that Dapper Drake has when there is
an extra IDE controller on the PCI bus.
