Dang, I'll get it all here eventually, this is with v1.11 production. 
Three 3com 3c905B-TXNM (LAN, WAN, OPT1) and the TM1150 (WLAN(OPT2)), 
256MB RAM, AMD Athlon 750.  Using the generic-pc CF image (which worked 
flawlessly  might add (Syba CF adapter from eBay) and a cheap (eBay) 
Sandisk 16MB CF card.

Well, heck, just saw it in the system log:

Guess it has a Lucent chipset and not Prism.

Argh...my apologies.

Thanks (again, sheesh).
