I wonder if this is the same problem as I suspect another guy was having
when the language was set to 'French'. Are you using 'German' as your
system language? If so, can you tell me what the name of the 'PCI Bus'

I probably need to use something a little more unchanging to detect the
PCI Bus to attach xenhide to.
