Yup ... but, but, there seems to be an issue with the firmware update.
Clemens suggests that my firmware may just be too old to handle the usb
data rate. So, I'll have to install etch on that spare partition on my
main audio box so I can use the old ymfpci card for old-school midi data

Of course, I could just build a kernel to make sure I've got the same
usb options and use the existing sarge install. But, I've been meaning
to install etch for a while anyway.
