I don't think Luc Verhaegan's patch ever got in,  so just set
CONFIG_VGA_CONSOLE but not CONFIG_PCI_ROM_RUN. The VGA rom will still run.
You can check this out in src/device/pci_rom.c (I haven't, so I could be
wrong or have some config value named wrong).


Thanks a ton Peter and Corey.  After disabling the SATA card's ROM, VGA is working probably and linux comes up :)
