That was a screen scrape as it doesn't seem possible to >filename that, or do 
I need to use the 2>&1>filename to capture it?  No, that doesn't work either, 
its all to the screen.  Not to mention the server is now dead again, I had to 
restart x as it was using 90% of all 4 cores of this phenom an hour or so ago 
after trying to print something and the printers have all disappeared (again, 
I'm about to install something else shortly, this crap is getting old) so 
after I send this its off to reboot and see whats missing this time.

Anyway, as the user gene, I get this:

In a paman screen, module-udev-detect is shown in the modules list.  Clickin 
g it, then properties doesn't tell me anything we don't already know, other 
than its index #5.

Cheers, Gene
