I finally found my VMETRO and put it in the slot and we were able to work 
it all out.

- incorrect setting of the pci i/o registers in the k8 northbridge (fix in 
	the works)
- the stupid vga cards don't respond to I/O in the legacy range until you 
	do a Magic Write to a Magic Place with Magic Data. The emulator 
	helped us figure this out since we can watch I/O 

But we're really a lot closer than we ever have been.
