I wasn't aware of that module, Thanks.  I'll have to rebuild the kernel
because it's actually a 'option' not a simple kernel module.  But that
will make things happier.  

now if the new scheduler would work with me better, so it doesn't stick
to 97% cpu I would be perfectly happy.

But alas, that is for another thread.
