Thanks again Jerry, I had tried both of those previously and found nothing
related to the nforce chipset:
# kmodule
NETWORK forcedeth
SCSI aic7xxx
AUDIO snd-intel8x0
USB ehci-hcd
USB ohci-hcd
USB ohci-hcd

And modprobe.conf makes no reference either. The only deduction is the driver
is compiled into the original CentOS kernel and not included as a module nor
is it included in the ramdisk image as one. I'm assuming I have to compile a
Xen kernel from source. I can't seem to find any kind of archive that points
to where I can get the sources or a method for building them.

Does anyone have a link? or possibly another suggestion?
Thanks again!!
