Thanks for your replies!

My slack is 2.6.11 kernel with ac patch. and it was configured with
yestoall because that was my first attempt at kernel and I missed up
on lot of things.

on the other hand, my LFS kernel is 2.6.13-4 (yeah, I forgot to
mention that diviation. Sorry) and ITE 82xx drivers were merged in it
already. So I assumed they would be better than the ac-patch.

How do you list out the modules that are loaded? I did a lsmodand got
the following output.
