Once you install to the hd, I'm thinking the best way to make sblive
the default, would be to load it in /etc/modules, which if I'm
correct, runs before udev does its probing, and then just let udev
detect, and load up your on-board card. This way, you should have the
sblive as card0, and your on-board card as card1.
