Thank you for your suggestion. I never thought of that myself. I will try to 
figure this out early next week, when I have access to the servers again.

My distribution is CentOS 5, maybe you can tell me where I should start 

On the other hand, if you could help me with the PCI passthrough problem, I 
would still prefer that solution. I sent my question last week to this list 
with message title "PCI Passthrough not working" dated 25-04-07.
